However, some taxa (e.g., Brachiopoda, Nemertea, Platyhelminthes, and Porifera) were identified only to phylum level because no thorough identification keys exist for Canadian Arctic waters; we acknowledge that this study has probably underestimated the richness of these taxa.
Among animals, there were Mesozoa, Gnathostomulida, Bryozoa, Cycliophora, Myzostomida, and Nemertea; also there are Rotifera, Nematomorpha, Scalidophora, Acanthocephala, Entoprocta, and Gastrotricha from Coelomata.
