Taxonomy McCrady used Nemopsis gibbesi for a medusa and a pelagic polyp (which proved to be unrelated). The medusa was the recognized by Agassiz (1862) as Nemopsis bachei, acting thus as first revisor and restricting the name to the medusa. Unfortunately, Hartlaub (1899)applied the name to the polyp stage as Margelopsis gibbesi. Formally, this is thus an invalid name. [details]
