  • SummaryRhabdites are rod-shaped secretory products characteristic of the Turbellaria but also found in nemerteans, gastrotrichs and annelids. Their functions are poorly understood. The structure, synthesis and secretion of rhabdites were studied in one archiannelid (Protodrilus sp.), and three turbellarians (Alloioplana californica, Polycladida;Monocelis cincta, Alloeocoela;Polychoerus carmelensis, Acoela). InAlloioplana, Monocelis andPolychoerus the rhabdites are the only, or most common… CONTINUE READING
