Serotonin immunoreactivity in the nervous system of the free-swimming larvae and sessile adult females of Stephanoceros fimbriatus (Rotifera: Gnesiotrocha)
Unlike most rotifers (Rotifera), which are planktonic and direct developers, many gnesiotrochan rotifers (Monogononta: Gnesiotrocha) are sessile and have indirect development. Few details exist onExpand

When heads are not homologous: the coronae of larval and adult collothecid rotifers (Rotifera: Monogononta: Collothecaceae)
Rotifers are diverse and abundant aquatic micrometazoans that rely on their ciliated apical end (corona) for locomotion and feeding. In order Collothecaceae, which includes mostly sessile species,Expand
