Scyphozoa (cup animals and jellyfishes)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Scyphozoa are an exclusively marine class of the phylum Cnidaria, sometimes referred to as the "jellyfish" (or sea jellies - as they are not, in fact, fish).The class name Scyphozoa comes from the Greek word skyphos (σκύφος), denoting a kind of drinking cup and alluding to the cup shape of the organism.Scyphozoans have existed, in geological time, from the Ediacaran period to the present.
