Nemopsis bachei

Nemopsis bachei (hydromedusa)

Collected: Spring, 2005 5 km off of Assateague, VA sampling just above the bottom using an epibenthic sled (365micrometer mesh) in 8-9 m depths.

Notes: The four light-colored masses at the bottom give rise to clusters of 14-18 tentacles each.

ID notes: The light-colored gonads are attached to the bottom of the rather thick bell.
