Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 9.0 cm WD male/unsexed; (Ref. 2992)
Up to 9 cm wide, vaulted, exumbrella with polygonal network of nematocyst warts; 6 braod velar lappets in each octant, the two median lappets usually split; arm-disk quadratic, with one central and four peripheral filaments; mouth arms about as long as disk radius, without filaments, terminal appendages long, with a club-shaped swelling at the end of the long, thin pedicel; 12 to 15 (or 18) canal-roots in each octant; perradial rhopalar canals bottle-dhapes, without anastomoses.
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).
