Chun, 1885

Two, possibly more, very delicate nectophores with large nectosacs. Larval nectophore has a simple somatocyst, slightly swollen at its tip, and straight radial canals on the nectosac. Definitive nectophore has a bifurcated somatocyst and sinuous lateral radial canals on the nectosac. Bract like a cushion, with characteristically arranged canals. This is a very fragile species and is rarely seen; having not, to my knowledge, been collected by SCUBA divers. There is thus some doubt, in my mind, as to the records in the area under consideration here.

Lilyopsis rosea
