The differentiation results in the formation of larva / infant.

The formation of adult from the larva / infant is called as metamorphosis.

Two types of metamorphosis -

(i) Progressive Metamorphosis

(ii) Retrogressive Metamorphosis

Highly developed larva from the poorly developed adult. e.g. Ascidian larva of hardmania.
