Key facts

Arabella endonata is a parasitic polychaetous annelid that was first discovered in Port Hueneme,Southern California in 1972. Its name is based on the fact that it was found inside the coelomic cavity of oniuphid polychaete Dioparta ornat, making it an endoparasite.  Arabella endonata has two pairs of dorsal eyespots in a transverse row. Its jaw consists of triangularly fused mandibles and paired maxillary carries that are joined only at the posterior end.  Another defining feature is that A. edonata only has one notopodial aciculum.
