Diagrams of the position of Phoronida in the substrata. , 1972). in its own burrow which is lined by a yellowish membrane that sometimes projects and is then covered with debris (Fig. 28b). The perforated hard substrata are of different kinds in Phoronis ovalis, P . hippocrepia and P . ijimai. They generally live in empty mollusc shells, sometimes in living ones, but also in barnacles, Caryophyllia, Lithothumnim, coral rubble and rocks (lime- sand- and calcarous stones), and logs (see Emig, 197313).

79) in spring 1972, but the population suffered high mortality by heavy predation (60000adults/m2 by June). In some Californian areas, Ph>oronopsisharmeri shows a uniform distribution over the littoral region of the flats, slightly less dense on the upper and lower edges of the intertidal zone where the sediment is coarser. The average annual population of P. harmeri probably remains rather constant. But, according to Ronan (1978), the population of P . harmeri shows density variations of 0-22 000 individuals/m2 along the intertidal zone.

Y, the larval form considered by Zimmer (1978) as that of Phoronis architecta (which species is a synonym of P . psammophila according to Emig, 1972a, 1977c) is thought to be related to Actinotrocha branchiata (see following paragraph). 5. Larva of Phoronis muelleri: Actinotrocha branchiata Actinotrocha branchiata was discovered near Helgoland by Muller (1846), who considered this animal to be an adult. The adult form named Phoronis was described in 1856 by Wright on the English coast. The transformation of this actinotroch into Phoronis muelleri was established by Selys-Longchamps (1903).
