How many species of ctenophora are there?

Compared to jellyfish, there are far fewer species of ctenophores: only 100-150 species have been found, but quite a few are out there yet to be discovered and fully documented. The best-known comb jellies are those found close to shore because, there, they are most likely to run into people.

What is the another name of phylum ctenophora?

Ctenophores, variously known as comb jellies, sea gooseberries, sea walnuts, or Venus’s girdles, are voracious predators.

Where did the new ctenophore species come from?

Claude and Danielle Carré discovered four new ctenophore species in the well-studied surface waters off southeastern France during the 1980s and 1990s in the course of careers spent studying planktonic animals there. Note that genus and species names are always written in italics.

What are the morphologies of the coastal ctenophores?

The most numerous coastal ctenophores usually have one of three quite different morphologies. Representatives of the order Cydippida are round or oblong in shape, usually less than 3 cm (about one inch) in diameter, with solid bodies distinguished by eight radial comb rows that provide locomotion, and two,…
