Recently the author presented data which supported the suggestion (Owen & Williams 1969) that the brachiopod caeca can inhibit boring organisms and store excess nutrients (Curry 1983). In the light of this work it is appropriate to describe and discuss an additional function which has been proposed for the caeca, especially as the data appear in a zoological journal which may not otherwise come to the attention of brachiopod palaeontologists.
