Discomedusae is a subclass of jellyfish in the class Scyphozoa.
A diverticulum (plural: diverticula) is the medical or biological term for an outpouching of a hollow (or a fluid-filled) structure in the body.
Drymonema is a genus of true jellyfish, placed in its own family, the Drymonematidae.
A gamete (from Ancient Greek γαμετή gamete from gamein "to marry") is a haploid cell that fuses with another haploid cell during fertilization (conception) in organisms that sexually reproduce.
A gonad or sex gland or reproductive gland is a mixed gland that produces the gametes (sex cells) and sex hormones of an organism.
In biology, gonochorism (Greek offspring + disperse) or unisexualism or gonochory describes the state of having just one of at least two distinct sexes in any one individual organism.

A simple eye (sometimes called a pigment pit) refers to a type of eye form or optical arrangement that contains a single lens.
A skyphos (σκύφος; plural skyphoi) is a two-handled deep wine-cup on a low flanged base or none.
