On the larval stages of Solmundella bitentaculata Browne

Rajan, C T (1963) On the larval stages of Solmundella bitentaculata Browne. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 5 (2). pp. 315-316.



Solmundella bitentaculata Browne (Order: Narcomedusa, Family : Aeginidae) is very widely distributed and has been recorded from the Indian waters by Menon (1932). S. bitentaculata of the tropical Atlantic and Pacific was originally described by Quoy and Gaimard as Charybda bitentaculata and subsequently by Haeckel as Aeginella bitentaculata and by Mass as Solmundella (Aeginopsis) hensinii. The development of S. mediterranea has been studied by Muller, Metschnikoff, Mass and Woltereck (Ref. Mayer, 1910). There is at present only very little information about the larval stages of Solmundella bitentaculata.
