planula larva In coelenterates, a free-swimming, ciliated, elongated, radially symmetrical larva that has distinct anterior and posterior ends but no gastrovascular cavity. Some authorities have hypothesized that an organism very similar to the planula larva gave rise to the Animalia, for which reason it is also known as the planuloid ancestor.
