deutrosomes - radial cleavage, endomesoderm forming, all coelemate coelem form from fusion of enterocoelos pouches, anus forms at or near blastopore, mouth new formation, included echinodermata, hemichordata, chardata and brachiopoda. protostomes - spiral cleavage, primative gut mesoderm, endomesoderm usually from a particaular blastomere, embryology mostly determinate (mosaic), mouth from at or near blastophore anus new formation. includes platyhelminths, annelida, molluscs and arthropoda. 

echinodermata - thick, spiney skin, 5 sided symmetry, tube feet, skeleton like structure. coelomate meaning - gut, ectoderm, mesoderm, eipderm, peritoneum.e.g starfish (subcalls asteroidea), sea lillies, class stelleroida, sea urchin (class echinoidea), sea cucumber.

protochordates (still deutrostomes) - 3 groups hemichordates, urochordates and cephalochordates. share vertebrate and non-vertebrate features - notochord,  dorsal nerve chord and gills but lack proper vertebral column.

2 classes in hemichordata - pterobracnhia and enteropneusta - notochord is diff from a chordate notochord which puts them is seperate phylum. pterobranchia - colonial grow inside disguarded mollusc shells, 2 tentacled arm. Enteropneusta - acorn shaped proboscis, fleshy collar, worm like- trunk perforated by many pharyngeal slits which open out into atria called pharynx  e.g acorn worm.

urochordata - the tunicates. ascidiacea (sea squirts), thaliacea and larvacea. larval form shows important chordate features. sea squirt - adults loose notochord and hollow dorsal nerve cord and pharynx with gill slits.. entire body enclosed by a cellulose tunic, filter feed by cilary action. sac shaped body filled with perforated cilia covered pharynx, gut and gonad lie free in atrium. ciona - most chordate features lost as pharynx develops into enormous filter feeding mechanism at adult stage.

thaliacea - salpa, has opaque bands of muscle and internal organs, muscle pump water through body. larvacea - e.g of neotony where juvenille becomes sexually mature, larva becomes mature without losing tail or notochord.

cephalochordates - one genus branchiostoma small and have all chordate features including postanal tail and thyroid gland.

summary - hemichordates posses some chordate features. Urochordates and cephalochordates posses all of them, even if not present in all life stages.
