Cyaneidae

 

Cyaneidae is a family of jellyfish. There are about 20 species in this family. Semaeostomeae in which the central stomach gives rise to radiating pouches which in turn give rise to numerous branching, blind canals in the marginal lappets; without a ring-canal; with gonads in complexly folded, interradial eversions of the wall of the subumbrella; with tentacles arising from the subumbrella at some distance from the margin.
