(A) Acoelomates are the organisms that lack coelom or body cavity.

Acoelomates include the following phyla:

  • Phylum Porifera
  • Phylum Coelenterata
  • Phylum Platyhelminthes

Of these, Phylum Porifera and Phylum Coelenterata are diploblastic in nature while Phylum Platyhelminthes is triploblastic in nature.

(B) Organisms with two germ germ layers are said to be diploblastic while organisms with three germ layers are called triploblastic.
