Translation 2. Pleurobrachia rhodopis Chun.

I observed this new species in few representatives in spring 1877 and 1878. The largest specimen measured 3/4 cm. It is elliptical and has 8 ribs [combs] of equal size arising not far from the sensory pole and extending over little more than half of the body. The strongly developed base of the tentacle is closer to the periphery and is oblique, so that its extended axis forms an acute angle with the stomach, the apex of which would be located at the mouth opening. The base of the tentacle, as well as the tentacle filament with its side branches are vividly pigmented pink, whereas the rest of the body is free of pigment spots. The tentacle emerges from the poorly developed sheath at the same level as the base of the funnel [infundibulum]. [details]
