The paper is based on a huge variety of Hydromedusae Rich photographed and collected during blackwater dives over almost two years. “Photos of living medusae – whole animals and details – present clear advantages over drawings and reconstructions made from preserved material collected with plankton nets……..The aim of the present work was therefore to document, identify, DNA barcode, and discuss the taxonomy of hydromedusae observed and photographed in situ off the coast of Florida.” It is a tremendous piece of work identifying 46 species, 6 additional species nameable only to the genus level, and describing 6 new species.
