Reproduction in nerilla antennata archiannelida nerillidae induction of spawning



Reproduction in nerilla antennata archiannelida nerillidae induction of spawning



Bollettino di Zoologia 49(3-4): 283-286



Experimental research on the reproductive biology of the archiannelid species N. antennata, under controlled conditions, demonstrated the role of spermatophores in inducing females to spawn. Ripe males release spermatophores without any apparent external stimulus; females spawn only in the presence of spermatophores attached to the substratum. Spermatophores open when eggs are laid nearby and then eggs are fertilized. How spawning induction may be brought about is discussed.
