The organization of the stenotele nematocyst has been studied in order to understand how its pattern might develop. The butt, or axial filament, was found to connect to the most anterior transverse loop by means of a major arch of the tubule. It is postulated that this arrangement can be understood in terms of developmental mechanics.
