[Annelida] chitin-containing tubes

Paxton (1986) in Generic revision and relationships of the family Onuphidae
describes the clear, round, case of *Hyalinoecia* as being composed of a
"quill like" and   "translucent, usually tough substance" that to me
appears to be chitinous.

The paper is too large to e-mail, but it can be downloaded from the
Australian Museum (Records of the Australian Museum 38(1): 1–74).

Cheers and Good Luck,
