Comparisons of rates of capture of algal-flavored and unflavored plastic spheres indicated that captures at the ciliary band did not depend on chemical stimuli although acceptance or rejection nearer to the mouth did, thus supporting the hypothesis of a mechanical stimulus for the local reversals that retain particles at the ciliary band (Appelmans, 1994).
