Unidentified ascidian

Posted on 06 February 2013 by Nazca admin

Ascidians are placed in the Chordates group due to the presence of a notochord and a basic nervous system while in the larval stage.

Their anatomy during this stage is very similar to that of a tadpole. They share the same group (Chordata) as the vertebrates.
