The Lophotrochozoans Trochophore larva
Background image of page 2
The trochophore larva uniquely defines the clade that includes molluscs and annelids (the “MA clade”). Given that fact, how can that larva help one determine where the MA clade goes within the protostomes? A) It can’t B) It implies that all other protostomes are a clade united by the lack of a trochophore larva-- thus, it places the MA as sister to other protostomes C) It suggests that the MA clade is a recently derived clade within protostomes, since it must have taken a long time to evolve such a complex larval type
