The ultrastructure of venom‐producing cells in Paranemertes peregrina (Nemertea, Hoplonemertea)
The nemertean Paranemertes peregrina uses its long, eversible proboscis to capture nereid polychaetes. During prey capture, the glandular epithelium of the everted proboscis secretes a sticky venomExpand
