Catostylus ornatellus (Vanhöffen, 1888)


Catostylus ornatellus (Vanhöffen, 1888) 

Remarks: there is no other report of this species (only re-arrangement in other genera). Probably it was misidentified (damaged specimen) or is a rare species. Because there are no reports of medusae from the Ecuadorian coast, its status is maintained until further specimens are found.

Distribution in South America: medusa—Pacific Ocean, Ecuador, at Puná Island, near Guayaquil (Vanhöffen 1888).

Habitat: neritic species.
