  1. phylum sipuncula

    Phylum Sipuncula, also known as peanut worms, is a group of unsegmented, coelomate marine invertebrates comprising about 150 known species. The name Sipuncula derives from the Greek word 'sipho', implying the tubular, retractable anterior portion of their bodies. These worm-like organisms are usually small, most species less than 10 cm in length, but some may grow larger. The body is generally divided into a narrow anterior section and a thicker posterior section. Sipunculans live in burrows and holes within marine substrates or inside live corals and they are widely distributed throughout the world's oceans, from the intertidal zone to depths exceeding 5,000 meters.
