CharacteristicsPhylum, Class, or OrderCommon name or example
Thick, scaly skin, amniotic egg, jaws for crushing prey, internal fertilization, ectothermicLizards, turtles, snakes
Same as annelids, but... Jointed appendages, pronounced tagmatization, lack intersegmental septa, chitinous exoskeleton, open circulatory system, trachiole system, undergo ecdysis
Cephalothorax and abdomen, appendages with gills, sharp telsonHorseshoe crabs
Some use pharyngial slits as respiratory organs, some use as modified jawsVertebrates
Aquatic, two pairs of antennae, most appendages biramous, most possess carapace, ecdysis
Six pairs of appendages, no antennae
Distinct head, conspicuous segmentation, segments with parapodia and many setae, usually trochophore larvae, mostly marine, dioeciousLugworm, sandworm, clam worm

Jawless, no paired appendages, cartilagenous skeleton
Mostly terrestrial, one pair of appendages per segment, most appendages uniramous, malphighian tubules
Body divided into three longitudinal lobes, distinct head, trunk, and abdomen, biramous appendages, all extinct
 Lampreys
Live halfway in sediment, as adult have all five hallmarksLancelets
Spines radiating from central body, ossicles fused into test, feed through Aristotle's lanternSea urchins
Closed circulatory system, siphon, beak-like jaws, tentacles, pen, camera eyeSquids, cuttlefish, nautilus, octopuses (That's the what he had on the PowerPoint, I didn't question it.)
Aquatic, non-tetrapod vertebrate, possess gills, appendages as fins, skin with scales(Not a phylum, class, or order)
Eight thoracic segments, six abdominal segments, telson
CharacteristicsPhylum, Class, or OrderCommon name or example
