Structural and ultrastructural studies on the gut of the chaetognath Spadella cephaloptera, as well as observations on the feeding behavior of specimens bred in the laboratory, were conducted. The gut displays four distinct zones: pharynx, esophagus, and intestine, to which are connected a pair of diverticula, and the rectum, differing in length, shape, and cellular composition. The intestine alone represents ∼90% of the gut length. Upon ingestion, food in the intestine is submitted to… Expand
