Worm Phyla

From ToyAnimalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Few toy figures represent species of worm-like phyla. This page includes minor phyla along with two major taxa: flatworms and annelids. Each phylum is only distantly related to other vermiform groups.

In biology, "worm" refers to an obsolete taxon (vermes) used by Carolus Linnaeus and Jean-Baptiste Lamarck for all non-arthropod invertebrate animals, and stems from the Old English word wyrm.
