Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A holoplanktonic, oceanic and semi-cosmopolitan species (Ref. 19) inhabiting offshore warm waters (Ref. 813); non symbiotic but often appears in high numbers (Ref. 7694). Feeds on salps, doliolids, larvaceans, hydromedusae, ctenophores, chaetognaths, planktonic crustaceans and fish eggs (Ref. 2376). Members of the class Scyphozoa are gonochoric. Life cycle: Egg is laid by the adult medusa which later develops into a free-living planula, then to a scyphistoma to a strobila, and lastly to a free-living young medusa (Ref. 833).
