Organism ImageNematostella vectensis (starlet sea anemone)

The starlet sea anemone lives in brackish lagoons.

Lineage: Eukaryota[8504]; Metazoa[4118]; Cnidaria[70]; Anthozoa[41]; Hexacorallia[38]; Actiniaria[11]; Edwardsiidae[1]; Nematostella[1]; Nematostella vectensis[1]
Nematostella vectensis , the starlet sea anemone, has a very simple body plan as it lacks a head and a brain, and has a single orifice for ingestion and excretion. It is gaining in popularity as an important model system to study many biological processes since the sequence for its genome is now available.
