Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Stauromedusae are usually permanently attached to a substrate but can move in a somersaulting motion by adhering to the subsrate with the oral end and releasing the pedal disc, then reattaching the disc at a new location. None have been observed to swim. [details]
