 (sē′ ĕl′ə-gănz)
A nematode (Caenorhabditis elegans) that was the first animal whose genome was completely sequenced and is widely studied by researchers because it has a small genome and transparent skin.

For nonmollusc invertebrate species, such as the hermaphrodite nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (Maupas, 1900), the tetraploid condition does not result in an alteration of sex because it has been reported that tetraploids still develop as hermaphrodites (Nigon 1949b, cited by Madl & Herman 1979).
