The genus Caenorhabditis has been central to our understanding of metazoan biology. The best known species, Caenorhabditis elegans, is but one member of a genus with around 50 known species, and knowledge of these species will place the singular 1 example of C. elegans in a rich phylogenetic context. How did the model come to be as it is today, and what are the dynamics of change in the genus?
