Habitat: medusa—eurythermic and euryhaline species, epi-mesopelagic, distributed in warm and temperate waters of all oceans, including Mediterranean Sea (Kramp 1957; Navas-Pereira 1974; Correia 1983; Segura- Puertas 1984; Bonecker et al. 2014). In southeastern Brazilian coast the species is associated with the tropical water mass of the Brazil Current (Oliveira et al. 2010b, abstract; Bonecker et al. 2014; Nagata et al. 2014a, 2014b; Nogueira Jr. et al. 2015b).
