Cystonectae

provided by wikipedia EN

Cystonectae is a suborder of siphonophores.[2] It includes the Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis) and Bathyphysa conifera, sometimes called the "flying spaghetti monster."

In Japanese, it is called 嚢泳[3] (Nōei).

The typical cystonect body plan has a pneumatophore (float) and siphosome (line of polyps) but no nectosome (propulsion medusae).[4]

Diagnosis

provided by World Register of Marine Species
Siphonophores with a relatively large pneumatophore and without nectosome; pneumatophore with apical pore; siphosome bears gastrozooids, with tentacles, and gonodendra, but no bracts; gonodendron with gonopalpons, gonophores and asexual swimming bells. Gonophores on a single colony are all of the same sex.
