lactea ephyrae suggests that this species may complete its life cycle in Argentina, off southern Buenos Aires Province.
Ephyrae, juveniles, and adults have been observed along their distributional range (Mianzan, 1986, 1989a, 1989b; Mianzan et al., 1988; Faillia-Siquier, 2006; Dutto et al., 2017).
Nineteen Aurelia ephyrae were used, eight each for the two primary antibodies and three for double stains.
At first glance, the two networks appear to be associated with nematocytes, which are scattered in Aurelia ephyrae but form clusters in adults.
Survivorship and production of Aurelia aurita ephyrae
in the innermost part of Tokyo Bay, Japan.
Individuals of Aurelia aurita (Linnaeus 1758) ranging in size from newly budded ephyrae (0.25 cm) to fully mature medusae (10.0 cm) were obtained from cultures of strobilating polyps maintained by the New England Aquarium in Boston, Massachusetts.
These higher speed recordings were of shorter duration, and the ephyrae remained in the recording vessels for no longer than 5 min.
(1998) demonstrated that ephyrae spend the bulk of their natural existence actively swimming, and Sullivan et al.
Because of their smaller sizes and lower swimming velocities, ephyrae experience dramatically different fluid environments compared to adults of the same scyphomedusan species.
Smaller stages of these medusivores can be fed Aurelia ephyrae
, finely diced adult medusae, or small hydromedusae.
Ranging from monodisk to polydisk with more than 20 developing ephyrae
. Color varying with locality: cinnamon in southern California, buff in Monterey.
were budded from scyphistomae at 20 [per thousands] in the laboratory.
