- Phyllochaetopterus prolifica (Chaetoperidae) is a sedentary polychaete occurring in dense colonies of highly branched tubes (Potts, 1914). Like other Chaetopteridae its body is divided into three distinct and highly differentiated regions. This paper investigates various aspects of the biology of Phyllochaetopterus prolifica: its methods of tube irrigation and feeding, the functional morphology of the palps, its methods of asexual reproduction and regeneration, and aspects of its sexual forms.
