Although this condition appears to represent an evolutionary heterotopic and heterochronic shift compared to the situation encountered in other spiralians, it has recently been suggested that 4d might serve as the organizer in annelids and that the organizer activity of 3D might be continued by its daughter (4d) in Ilyanassa obsoleta (Lambert and Nagy, 2003; Lambert, 2008).

The comparative data in annelids support the hypothesis that the role of Hunchback as an anterior organizing segmentation gene, as described in Drosophila, is a novel trait specific to arthropods and may be restricted further to insects in view of the expression data obtained from non-insect arthropods (Kontarakis et al.
