"During its passage through the gonopore, the capsule becomes coated with the adhesive secretion of the cement glands, and this secretion may be drawn out into a stalk fastening the capsule to an object.

These hatch in a few weeks to complete tiny worms; free-swimming larvae only occur in some polyclads."
