Abstract: The vascular anatomy of the Annelid worms has, in general, been little studied. This is especially true of the marine worms of the family Cirratulidae in the class Polychaeta. The vascular organization, blood flow pattern, and blood vessel structure were examined in detail for the species Cirriformia spirabrancha (Moore, 1904).
