AbstractDespite being the most abundant jellyfish species in the Mediterranean Sea, little is known about the early life of P. noctiluca. Herein, we described four stages of ephyrae based on their morphological characteristics and their size on field capture samples. To determine the stage distribution of ephyrae in the western Mediterranean Sea, we computed a model using biological and environmental data of 39 plankton samples collected in 2014 -16 around the Balearic archipelago. Further, the vertical distribution of the ephyrae was evaluated with 8 stratified plankton tows from 0 to 100 m deep over 48 hours, pointing that P. noctiluca ephyrae predominate in the upper strata of the water column both, during the day and night. This work presents useful information on the biology and ecology of ephyrae of P. noctiluca.
