    ..We also provide some resolution within the Lophotrochozoa, where we confirm support for a monophyletic clade of Echiura, Sipuncula and Annelida and surprising evidence of a close relationship between Brachiopoda and Nemertea...

    Sarah J Bourlat
    Department of Invertebrate Zoology, Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm, Sweden

    ..Here we present analyses comparing the Xenoturbella bocki mitochondrial gene order, genetic code and control region to those of other metazoan groups...

    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 363:1529-37. 2008
    ..Relationships within Ecdysozoa are also controversial and we discuss the molecular and morphological evidence for a number of monophyletic groups within this superphylum...
