    • Types of Marine WormsPhylum Platyhelminthes – the flatwormsPhylum Nemertea – the ribbonwormsPhylum Nematoda – the roundwormsPhylum Chaetagnatha – the arrow wormsPhylum Pogonophora – the deep sea tubewormsPhylum Annelida – the segmented worms
    • Phylum Nemertea – the ribbonworms
    • Phylum Nematoda – the roundworms
    • Phylum Chaetagnatha – the arrow worms
    • Phylum Pogonophora – the deep sea tubeworms
    • Phylum Platyhelminthes – the flatworms-Ex:Tapeworms, Planaria, Parasitic Fluke-Some parasites, some free-living scavengers orpredators-Some cause “Swimmers’Itch”
