Record Type: concept
jellyfish (Cnidaria (phylum), Animalia (kingdom), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: General name referring to various marine and fresh-water, free-swimming members of the phylum Cnidaria, belonging to various classes based on different morphology; families include Cubozoa (about 20 species), Scyphozoa (about 200 species), Staurozoa (about 50 species), and Hydrozoa (about 1000-1500 species, all of which are not jellyfish). Most jellyfish have in common a rounded, nearly transparent gelatinous body with a mouth on the underside surrounded by stinging tentacles; their bodies alternately expand and contract, allowing them to trap prey in their tentacles as they jet upward and parachute down again.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 指各種生活在海水與淡水中,自由游動的刺胞動物門成員。依形態上的差異分屬不同綱,包括立方水母綱(約含二十種生物)、缽水母綱(約含兩百種生物)、十字水母綱(約含五十種生物),以及水螅綱(約含一千至一千五百種非水母的生物)。多數水母的共同點為其渾圓且近乎透明的凝膠狀身體,口位於身體下方,周圍有具毒性的觸手;身體不斷伸展與收縮,使其在向上噴射及往下降落的時候,能夠利用觸手捕捉獵物。
