Order STAUROMEDUSAE Haeckel 1879

Claudia Mills, with Yayoi Hirano, is compiling a list of valid species names with synonyms, images, and some explanatory text that is available at http://faculty.washington.edu/cemills/Staurolist.html. For additional background information on the Stauromedusae see also http://faculty.washington.edu/cemills/Stauromedusae.html. (These links will open in new windows.) The list below is incomplete, being based largely on Kramp (1961).

From Kramp (1961) and Mianzan & Cornelius (1999).
