Observations on the moon jelly, Aurelia aurita, and the spider crab, Libinia dubia



Observations on the moon jelly, Aurelia aurita, and the spider crab, Libinia dubia



Chesapeake Sci 4(4): 195



Observations of an association between Aurelia aurita and Libinia dubia are reported. Numerous small spider crabs were noted on these occasions, clinging to the medusae, and two individuals were found to have penetrated into the mesoglea and were feeding upon the medusan tissue. This association is considered one of chance contact.
