Abstract

In a recently published paper Gilchrist has described a. new genus and species of crawling Medusa, Cnidonema capense, from the Cape of Good Hope. From an examination of both the medusa and the hydroid stage of the Cape species he concludes that the crawling Medusae of the Southern Hemisphere are generically distinct from the northern forms. The crawling Medusae of the Northern Hemisphere belong to the genus Eleutheria, which is represented by only two species, Eleutheria dichotoma, Quatrefages and E. Claparedei, Hartlaub.
