Note(s): A series of dense accessory "membranes" was observed between the nucleus and the plasmalemma of K. lepidota sperm but not in V formosa. Stored sperm in female worms were observed in V formosa but no female K. lepidota were available in this study. Sperm storage and elongated sperm structure in alciopid polychaetes may be related to the pelagic environment in which they live and the suspected infrequent encounters between individuals.
