Cnidaria / (marine) sponges
Explanation:
The Cnidaria
The Cnidaria are the simplest Metazoa, and do not even possess organs. All they have is a stomach and a mouth surrounded by tentacles.


Marine Sponges
http://www.meerwasser-lexikon.de/eng/79/1277/Ptilocaulis/sp....

The sponges or poriferans (from Latin porus "pore" and ferre "to bear") are animals of the phylum Porifera. They are primative, sessile, mostly marine, waterdwelling filter feeders that pump water through their matrix to filter out particulates of food matter. Sponges are among the simplest of animals, with partially differentiated tissues but without muscles, nerves, and internal organs.
