Organism ImageCiona intestinalis (vase tunicate)

Sea squirt found in temperate waters throughout the world

Lineage: Eukaryota[2312]; Metazoa[774]; Chordata[332]; Tunicata[5]; Ascidiacea[3]; Enterogona[2]; Phlebobranchia[2]; Cionidae[2]; Ciona[2]; Ciona intestinalis[1]
The sea squirt Ciona intestinalis is a member of the urochordates, small invertebrate marine animals that are also called tunicates. Sea squirts are sessile, hemaphroditic animals found in shallow water; C. intestinalis is found in temperate waters around the world. The adult sea squirt has a sac-shaped body surrounded by a flexible tunic, More...
