Authors


Abstract

The freshwater medusa Limnocnida victoriae was found from December 1956 to April 1957 in a pool which becomes separated from the main channel of the River Sokoto during the dry season. The medusae are described and the importance of the number and size of statocysts as a systematic character within the genus is discussed. A map showing the distribution of Limnocnida in Africa is given.
