Other annelids also presented more than one family of oxygen-binding protein: for example, some species of Terebellidae, Opheliidae, and Sipuncula (Bailly et al., 2008; Liu et al., 2013).

As capitellids, echiurids, and opheliids are apparently closely related to each other (along with some taxa that do not include any species with feeding larvae, e.g., Arenicolidae, Maldanidae, and Terebellidae) and share the unusual ability to capture large particles, it seems plausible that the most recent common ancestor of all three taxa had planktotrophic larvae that fed using the same mechanism(s) used by U.
