Definition of Rhombozoa in English:
A minor phylum of mesozoan worms which are parasites in the kidneys of cephalopod molluscs.
- However, it has been shown that in many phyla, such as Rhombozoa, Dicyemida, Nematoda, Gnathostomulida, and Chaetognatha, 18S rDNA genes do not evolve at a constant rate.
- They are now believed to be made up of two, possibly unrelated, groups: the Dicyemida (Rhombozoa) and Orthonectida.
