Scientific Name: 
Syllis gracilis
SpecimenID: 
mCT-00022
ScanID: 
scan-00022

Micro-CT was performed to the anterior end of a polychaete (Syllis gracilis). This specimen was fixed in formalin and preserved in 96% ethanol. Specimen was stained in 1% Iodine solution in 96% ethanol for 3 days. Scan was performed with a Skyscan 1172 at a voltage of 59kV and 167μΑ without filter for a full rotation of 360o . This specimen was scanned at the highest camera resolution with an exposure time of 1165ms. This scan was performed for the visualization of the pharynx of the specimen (http://zookeys.pensoft.net/articles.php?id=3650). Specimen was provided and scanned by Sarah Faulwetter. The original dataset is available in https://datadryad.org/resource/doi:10.5061/dryad.84m54.
