Most of the polychaete larvae in which feeding mechanisms have been studied feed using an opposed-band mechanism, capturing particles with prototrochal and metatrochal ciliary bands and transporting them to the mouth via a food groove. However, many other planktotrophic polychaete larvae lack a metatroch and food groove and thus must feed in a different way. In this latter group are the larvae of polynoid polychaetes, which not only lack a metatroch and food groove but also bear a bundle of… Expand
