  1. phylum pogonophora

    Phylum Pogonophora, also known as beard worms, is a group of marine invertebrate worms that lack a digestive system and rely on a symbiotic relationship with internal bacteria for their nutrition. They typically inhabit depths more than 100 meters underwater, anchored in sediment with their long bodies protruding into the water, absorbing nutrients directly from the water around them. The name 'Pogonophora' comes from Greek which means 'beard bearers', referring to their beard-like appendages which are used for respiration.
