About Clytia hemisphaerica

Clytia hemisphaerica is a hydrozoan–group cnidarian with both a colonial, vegetatively propagating polyp stage and free-living, sexual medusae. The evolutionary interest of the medusa lies in many complex features including striated muscle and sense organs that are absent in the polyp. In recent years, Clytia has helped answer questions including regulation of oocyte maturation, origins of embryo polarity and evolution of Hox genes and striated muscle.[1,2]
