Figure 6
Diagram illustrating the filter feeding process in Leucetta sp. The beating of the choanocyte flagella drives water currents through the sponge. Food particles are trapped by mucous and transported through the choanocyte collar. Once in the choanocyte cell, food particles are phagocytized and either fully digested or transferred to amoebocytes for further processing (Source: Reece et al., 2011, p. 670)
