Most myzostomids are ectocommensals of crinoids on which they move freely. Their locomotion is ensured by five pairs of parapodia located laterally below their trunk. Each parapodium in Myzostoma cirriferum is a conical structure that includes a hook-like chaeta, replacement chaetae and an aciculum. Structure and ultrastructure of the myzostomid chaetae are… CONTINUE READING
