Marine biologists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have described an unusually large and distinctive deep-sea crown jelly with coiled tentacles in Atollidae, a monogeneric family with 10 presently accepted species in the genus Atolla.

Laboratory photo of Atolla reynoldsi; diameter from margin to margin (excluding lappets) is 8.5 cm (3.3 inches) and tentacles were coiled in situ.

One feature researchers often use to identify Atolla is the single elongate, or hypertrophied, tentacle. One tentacle can stretch up to six times the diameter of the bell.

Observations from researchers in Japan suggest the single trailing tentacle helps a hungry Atolla snag siphonophores. (marine organisms)
