The Seasonal Cycle of Scyphozoa and Cubozoa in Georgia Estuaries

Two species of Cubozoa and five species of Scyphozoa are reported. The summer dominants are Stomolophus and Chiropsalmus while Cyanea and Rhopilema may dominate in winter. All species present in Georgia are also found in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
