Palleal reproduction involves the formation of a new bud from the peribranchial epithelium of a zooid.
For example, all described Botrylloides species to date have separate specialized pouches where embryos are brooded, however few Botryllus species have specialized brood structures and most hold their embryos free in the peribranchial chamber (Berrill 1950).

And in species that develop by palleal budding (in the Styelidae, including Botryllus schlosseri, Botrylloides leachi, Botryl-loides violaceus, and Polyandrocarpa misakiensis), the source of the new individual is a peribranchial epithelium of ectodermal origin (Berrill, 1941; Kawamura et al, 2008a; Fig.
3a, b, for stomach, intestine, endostyle; pharyngeal slits and neural complex not shown) were still confined by an intact perivisceral epithelium, and thus few cells were free in the peribranchial cavity (Fig.
