Pogonophores (deep sea vent worms) lack a digestive tract because of symbiotic chemosynthetic bacteria. Same with tapeworms because of their parasitic lifestyle. Lots of examples in parasitology.Can you cite a journal article or a study, published or unpublished, that has explained, in detail, how the vent worms were formed by RM/NS from some organism that had a digestive tract? Or any of the examples you cite? Isn't it true that the literature is replete with speculation on what may have happened, but nothing that would constitute a detailed explanation?Bryan
