Below a tab separated outcome of the search for 
oogenesis/spermatogenesis in my serpulid 
documentation. I noticed that some of these 
references were missing in Salvador's more 
general approach. They maybe are not that 
specific as what you are asking for, but might 
shed some light on the general background.
