Abstract:The colonial hydroid Proboscidactyla has
been found only on the leathery tubes of marine
sabellid worms (Uch ida and Okuda, 1941:433 ;
Hand, 1954; Brinckmann and Vannucci, 1965:
367) . Nothing is known about the means by
which this specific commensal association arises.
In this paper I present observations on planula
settling and metamorphosis, which indicate that
larvae are caught in the tentacles of the sabellid
worm and transferred to the rim of its tube.
