Abstract

It is seldom that an entirely novel animal is found, but Telegamatrix seems to be a unique example in evolution of what would appear to be an ideal copulatory arrangement for a sedentary hermaphrodite, whether animal or lower plant. Yet no parallel example comes to mind from either kingdom. Here we have hermaphrodite worms copulating at a distance by means of a tentacle containing two-way ducts
