Cover legend

Tentacular crown and operculum of the filter-feeding polychaete Hydroides elegans. The serpulid worm can retract its delicate structures into the calcareous tube, which is sealed by the opercular plug. Left inset, fluorescent nuclear staining of a spirally-cleaving embryo at the 64-cell stage seen from the top (animal cap). Right inset, side view of a 24-hour old feeding-trochophore larva which is partially immobilized. The foregut, midgut, hindgut, anal vesicle (bottom), equatorial ciliary band (middle) and animal cap (top) can be distinguished. For further details, see paper by Cesar Arenas Mena, pp. 73-83.
