definitive gut


The planarian triclad gut contains a central anterior gut branch connected to two posterior gut branches arranged around the definitive pharynx. Secondary gut branches extend laterally from the primary gut branches, while tertiary gut branches extend from the secondary branches. Food and waste enter and exit the definitive gut through the defintive pharynx.
