Polyp of a scyphozoan undergoing strobilation – asexual reproduction by transverse fission – giving rise to several small ephyrae (immature jellyfishes). The sequences illustrating the processes of transverse fission and liberation of the jellies were shot in time-lapse, being played 200 and 100 times faster, respectively, than normal.
