Feeding ecology and diet

Nemerteans are common predators in a variety of habitats, but there is little published information on food and feeding of anoplans. Palaeonemerteans appear to feed on annelids that are compatible with their size. What is known about het-eronemerteans indicates that their food is living or dead poly-chaetes, but they also feed on mollusks, crustaceans, and other nemerteans. Scavenging may be a way of life for many species, but clear-cut evidence exists only for the Antarctic Parborlasia corrugatus. There are no parasitic or commensal known hetero- or palaeonemerteans.
