Heterotrophic zooplankton is commonly much more diverse than phytoplankton. Representatives of most animal phyla either belong to the plankton throughout their life or have certain developmental phases in the plankton - hence they are called holo- or meroplankton, respectively. Meroplanktonic larvae do not resemble their parents, but transform into the adult form by metamorphosis (indirect development). During the indirect ontogeny of sipunculans a secondary larva, the pelagosphaera, succeeds a trochophore larva. Its body consists of a frontal cephalic region, a middle region with a ciliary band and the trunk. The head and the middle region can be retracted into the trunk.
