1- Sponges: bodies of sponges are composed of openings and chambers lined with specific cells containing whip-like flagella. These cells are called choanocytes.

2- Cnidarians: cnidarians have specific cells (cnidocytes) that fire harpoon-like stings that protect the animals or are used to capture prey.

3- Platyhelminthes: flatworms are composed of three layers of cells (endoderm, ectoderm, and mesoderm) but lack an internal body cavity.

4- Nematoda: the body of roundworms is elongated but is not segmented/

5- Annelida: the body of Annelida is elongated and segmented while each segment has the same set of organs.
