Abstract

The paper presents a detailed anatomical descriptionption of the ascidian Pyura stolonifera, a dominant zone form on South African coasts which is ideal for student dissections. Notes on the ecology of the animal and new observations on the function of the branchial folds in feeding are included, as these lend significance to the structural specialisations of the animal and the pattern of evolution within the tunicates.
