CharacteristicsPhylum, Class, or OrderCommon name or example
Mostly marine, solitary or colonial living, polyp is dominant body formHydra, Portuguese Man-O-War, Obelia
Can self-eject vescera (autoeviscerate), respiratory treeSea cucumbers
Aquatic, non-tetrapod vertebrate, possess gills, appendages as fins, skin with scales(Not a phylum, class, or order)
Six pairs of appendages, no antennae

No carapace, dorso-ventrally flattened, gills on abdominal appendagesPill bugs
All marine and free-living, medusa is dominant body formTrue jellyfish, Aurelia
Jawless, no paired appendages, cartilagenous skeleton
Bony skeleton, most tetrapod, most biphasic and undergo metamorphosis, fertilization in waterFrogs, salamanders
Body chiefly cephalothorax, 4-6 pairs of long, walking legs, mouth on long proboscis, no respiratory or excretory systemSea spiders

Three canal types, calcium carbonate spicules which are straight or have 3-4 rays
Body composed of head, trunk, and foot, ciliated corona, muscular pharynx, or mastax, with jaws, dioecious
Deuterostome, link between echinoderms & chordates?, dorsal nerve chord, pharyngeal gill slits

Thick, scaly skin, amniotic egg, jaws for crushing prey, internal fertilization, ectothermicLizards, turtles, snakes
Phyllopodia, no abdominal appendages
Aquatic, two pairs of antennae, most appendages biramous, most possess carapace, ecdysis
All marine, polyp is only body form, carnivorousSea anemones, corals
Spines radiating from central body, ossicles fused into test, feed through Aristotle's lanternSea urchins
Notochord, dorsal nerve cord, pharyngeal slits, endostyle, muscular, postanal tail
Five cephalic, six thoracic, four abdominal segments, telson, no abdominal appendagesBarnacles, copepods
One host, ectoparasitic, syncytial tegument, ciliated larval forms, monoecious
Some use pharyngial slits as respiratory organs, some use as modified jawsVertebrates
Syconoid or leuconoid canal systems, siliceous spicules having six rays
Eight thoracic segments, six abdominal segments, telson
Slender, long arms, madreporite on oral surface, no suckers on tube feet, respiration via bursaeBrittle and basket stars
CharacteristicsPhylum, Class, or OrderCommon name or example

Four pairs of segmented legs, cephalothorax and abdomen, respiration by gills, tracheae, or book lungs, excretion by Malphighian tubules, no true metamorphosisSpiders, scorpions, ticks, mites
Cephalothorax and abdomen, appendages with gills, sharp telsonHorseshoe crabs
No cephalization, filter feeders, no radula, shell in two halves, muscular foot, labial palpBivalves
Lobe-finned teleost (Bony fish), Caudal fin diphycercal, southern hemisphere
