Quick Reference

A second body cavity (the first being the gut) which occupies a space between the mesoderm of the body wall and the endoderm of the gut. There are no mesenteries suspending the internal organs and no muscular layers around the gut; thus in no pseudocoelomate animal does muscular peristalsis move food through the alimentary canal.
