CharacteristicsPhylum, Class, or OrderCommon name or example
Lose three hallmarks as adult, stationary as adultTunicates (sea squirts)
Some use pharyngial slits as respiratory organs, some use as modified jawsVertebrates
Organ system level of organization, bilateral symmetry, triploblastic, pseudocoelomate, cephalization
Dorsally convex, eight articulating plates, trochophore, usually dioeciousChitons
Mostly terrestrial, one pair of appendages per segment, most appendages uniramous, malphighian tubules
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, two pairs of antennae, most appendages biramous, most possess carapace, ecdysis
Slime glandVelvet worms
