  • Based on live specimens of Nemalecium lighti collected in the coasts of La Reunion (Indian Ocean) and Sao Sebastiao (Southeastern coast of Brazil) and kept in the laboratory, we observed the release of short-lived medusoids. The gonangia pass through six developmental phases: growing, ripening, migrating, stripping, liberating and spawning. The medusoids are tall, lack tentacles, bulbs, circular and radial canals, and the sexual products are packed around the eccentric manubrium; they are… CONTINUE READING
