AbstractThe newly liberated, immature medusae of H. scandens, Hebella furax, H. muscensis, and the liberable eumedusoid of H. dyssymetra are described. The taxonomy of the medusa-producing Hebellinae is revised in the light of life cycle features. Due to inconsistencies between skeletal and medusan features, Hebellopsis is merged into Hebella. The new genus Anthohebella is proposed for the hebellids with swimming gonophores. All the nominal species referred to Hebella and Hebellopsis are discussed; out of the 45 nominal species referred at least once to Hebella and Hebellopsis, 15 are retained as valid: 11 are referred to Hebella and four to Anthohebella gen. nov.; 12 nominal species are considered conspecific with currently recognized species referred to the genera Hebella, Scandia and Lafoea; the remaining 18 nominal species are retained as doubtful.
