|Abstract:||In the coelenterate seapen colony, Leioptilus guerneyi, two types of
minute spicules have been found; these give the characteristic chitosan tests indicative
of chitin. Chitin is essentially unknown in the Anthozoa. The definition of the
order Pennatulacea requires the addition of chitinous spicules to the calcareous
spicules already described for the group.
