The reproduction and larval development of spioniform polychaetes are reviewed. Asexual reproduction is relatively rare, being reported for only eight species belonging to the genus Pygospio and some polydorids. Both architomy and paratomy are known, with the latter limited to small species of Pseudopolydora (sometimes referred to Polydorella) and one species of Polydora. Architomy is often the primary form of reproduction in Pygospio elegans and contributes to the maintenance of large… CONTINUE READING
