Larve d'ascidie nageant à la recherche d'un support ; Larve nageuse de L'ascidie Phallusia m. Ce stade dure peu de temps car les papilles en bordure de l'individu servent à sa fixation sur un support solide dès qu'il a trouvé un rocher, une pierre, puis il perd sa queue, retourne sa morphologie interne(métamorphose) et commence à filtrer l'eau pour se nourrir et se développer.
