Epitoke
An individual that arises by modification and separation from the posterior end of the worm in order to leave the bottom and reproduce (adapted from Rouse & Pleijel, 2001). For instance, the new individual grows from the posterior segment and upon separation the daughter generates a new head and the mother a new posterior end.
