Abstract: The regenerative capabilities of Dorvillea moniloceras were investigated in order to answer the following three quesions. Can both posterior and anterior regeneration take place? What events take place before full regeneration is attained? Does the position along the body at which a worm is cut affect either the ability to regenerate or the rate of regeneration?
