There are many organisms in the marine world that are bioluminescent. In Bermuda, the polychaete annelid Odontosyllis enopla bioluminesces during mating activities that take place every month following the full moon. Three days following a full moon, 57 minutes after sunset, the females rapidly swim to the surface and emit a bright green fluorescent chemical that attracts the males who soon follow. Unfortunately, there has been very little research on their life cycle, other than reproduction. Therefore, the main focus of this page will be reproduction of Odontosyllis enopla as well as some life history traits of other species of the Odontosyllis genus.
