Description

Una delle più belle meduse del Mediterraneo: l’ombrello può misurare anche 30 cm, è molto rigido e tondeggiante al centro, dove ha colorazione rossastra o gialla. La parte più esterna è mobile e la fa procedere con le sue vigorose pulsazioni. Sotto l’ombrello, il manubrio assomiglia a un bouquet di fiori di campo, con bottoni blu-viola, inseriti su tozze braccia. Alcuni tentacoli, anch’essi terminanti con bottoni blu, fuoriescono dal manubrio.

Cotylorhiza può presentare microalghe che vivono in simbiosi sui propri tessuti, proprio come i coralli delle formazioni coralline tropicali. Funzionalmente, quindi, si può definire una "pianta" anche se si può nutrire di zooplankton.
