The jellyfish Phyllorhiza punctata is native to Australia and has been widely regarded as a successful invader. In the Mexican Pacific, this species has been recorded in the Gulf of California, specifically in La Paz Bay and the coast of the Baja California peninsula, but the origin of its introduction to the Mexican Pacific is unknown. There is a...

En la naturaleza existen tesoros muy antiguos, casi como la vida misma. Uno de ellos data de hace aproximadamente 600 millones de años y yace oculto en todos los mares. Este tesoro recibe el nombre de medusozoos. Te invitamos a conocer quienes lo conforman y a sus principales investigadores en el Pacífico mexicano. En este texto también conocerás p...

La contingencia sanitaria provocada por el nuevo coronavirus SARSCoV-2 causante de la enfermedad COVID-19 ha afectado al sector de la investigación y por ende a los académicos que están a su cargo. Sin embargo, hasta ahora no existe evidencia que indique el tipo de problemática que enfrentan los investigadores ante la contingencia y las medidas imp...

The seasonal variability of gelatinous zooplankton (siphonophores, medusae, and thaliaceans) abundance was investigated at Cabo Pulmo National Park (CPNP) from weekly zooplankton samples collected throughout 2014. The Gulf of California had prolonged warming during 2009-2019, with 2014 as the anomalously warm year preceding El Niño 2015-2016 compar...

Massive accumulations of pelagic species of Sargassum have generated recent social, economic and ecological problems along Caribbean shores. In the Mexican Caribbean, these events have prompted the study of diverse biological and ecological aspects of these macroalgae. However, studies on their associated biota, including Hydrozoa, remain scarce. T...
Data
Morphological characters of hydromedusae and their description in Spanish and English, besides structure synonyms, are included. For the compilation of the terms with their synonyms and definitions, a search and consultation were carried out in scientific articles, online databases, dictionaries, and specialized books on hydromedusae, and the autho...

Article
The Mexican Pacific has been the focus of several research expeditions, with 90 species of hydromedusae and more than 200 species of hydroids recorded for the region. However, only a few of these reports include taxonomic descriptions, hindering inferences of the phylogenetic relationships, species boundaries, and diversity of Hydrozoa in Mexican w...

The skeleton plays a vital role in the survival of aquatic invertebrates by separating and protecting them from a changing environment. In most of these organisms, calcium carbonate (CaCO 3) is the principal constituent of the skeleton, while in others, only a part of the skeleton is calcified, or CaCO 3 is integrated into an organic skeleton struc...

Los medusozoos están divididos en cuatro subgrupos: Staurozoa (estauromedusas o medusas pedunculadas), Cubozoa (cubomedusas o medusas caja), Scyphozoa (escifomedusas y escifopólipos) e Hydrozoa (hidromedusas, hidropólipos y sifonóforos o cadenas de medusas). Los medusozoos son importantes desde el punto de vista evolutivo, ecológico, económico y so...

Staurozoa es una clase de cnidarios con cerca de 50 especies. Durante su ciclo de vida, la estauromedusa conserva el pedúnculo del estauropólipo, y es por lo tanto una medusa bentónica, frecuentemente adherida a algas o rocas. La mayoría de sus especies están distribuidas en aguas frías, polares y templadas, pero hay excepciones. En este artículo p...

La biogeografía de medusozoos se inicia efectivamente en el siglo XX. Esta disciplina integra la distribución de medusas y pólipos en espacio y tiempo, considerando sus ciclos de vida y las múltiples estrategias reproductivas que poseen. Trabajos más recientes en biogeografía, incluyen el componente genético de los organismos en diferentes cuestion...

Tan fascinantes como el ser mitológico que les da nombre, las medusas resaltan por su “fantasmal” aspecto, sus versátiles formas de reproducción sexual y otras particularidades. Las hidromedusas son una clase importante de estos invertebrados, son microscópicas y algunas presentan un enorme potencial para la medicina (cáncer, alzhéimer y párkinson)...
Article
We present phylogenetic analyses (parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference) for 69 lineages of anthoathecate hydroids based on 18 morphological characters (12 proposed for the first time) plus mitochondrial (16S and COI) and nuclear (18S and 28S) molecular markers. This study aims to test the monophyly of the present concept of the fami...

The exoskeleton is an important source of characters for the taxonomy of Hydroidolina. It originates as epidermal secretions and, among other functions, protects the coenosarc of the polypoid stage. However, comparative studies on the exoskeletal tissue origin, development, chemical, and structural characteristics, as well as its evolution and homo...

Here, we provide the first list of shallowwater hydroids for Alacranes Reef, Mexico, comprising 49 species in 33 genera. The most speciose superorder was Leptothecata (36 species), with three particularly diverse families: Clytiidae, Sertulariidae, and Plumulariidae. Three species were recorded for the first time in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM), and 13...
Article
The benthic polyp phase of Medusozoa (Staurozoa, Cubozoa, Scyphozoa, and Hydrozoa) has endoskeletal or exoskeletal support systems, but their composition, development, and evolution is poorly known. In this contribution the variation in synthesis, structure, and function of the medusozoan exoskeleton was examined. In addition, an evolutionary hypot...

The family Bougainvilliidae comprises a group of anthoathecate hydrozoans that is biologically, ecologically and biogeographically poorly understood, and consequently, poorly taxonomically organized. Here, our goal is to synthesize knowledge of the family from an historical perspective, and to analyze their potential distribution based on their eco...

The new records provided here extend the geographic distribution know of nine hydromedusae species collected in the Laguna Madre, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The record of Phialella quadrata is the first one for the Western Atlantic Ocean, while Ectopleura dumortieri is registered for the first time in the Gulf of Mexico and Clytia folleata in the north of...
