Lyrocteis flavopallidus sp. nov., a large (up to 110 mm tall) platyctenean ctenophore from the Antarctic, is described on the basis of the external morphology. The pale straw-yellow color, lack of ridges and frills on the body and arms, presence of small papillae on the body, and geographical location are considered sufficient to distinguish L. flavopallidus from L. imperatoris Komai, 1941, the only other species in the genus. The systematic placement of L. flavopallidus is somewhat uncertain…

First Record of One Sessile Ctenophora, Lyrocteis imperatoris, and Its Embryos form Korea
The sessile ctenophores, Lyrocteis imperatoris Komai, 1941 were collected for the first time from Garinyeo, offshore Seogwipo of Jejudo Island by SCUBA diving on June 18, 2009. This species
Records of ctenophores from South Africa
TLDR
It is suggested that South Africa has a ctenophore fauna that is amongst the most diverse, globally; an observation in agreement with information from other taxa.
Erratum to: Changes in ecosystem engineers: the effects of kelp forest type on currents and benthic assemblages in Kachemak Bay, Alaska
TLDR
The results suggest that future changes in the distribution and abundances of these two kelp forest types may result in corresponding changes in hydrodynamic conditions within the forests, and thereby impact invertebrate and benthic algal assemblages.

TLDR
It is rather ironical that plarycrenids were taken in 1961 on the spines of the black urchin, Echinothrix diadema, collected from the sandy bottom in about 10 m of water at the seaward edge of Waikiki reef.
THE STRUCTURE AND BIOLOGY OF VALLICULA MULTIFORMIS, GEN. ET SP. NOV., A PLATYCTENID CTENOPHORE.
SUMMARY. A new genus of platyctenid Ctenophore is described and is shown to be intermediate in structure between Coeloplana and Lyrocteis. It is shown to form a further step in the series from
