    The film presents the four comb jelly species Pleurobrachia pileus, Bevoe gracilis, Bolinopsis infundibulum and Beroe cucumis. The film consists of four parts, each part covering a particular species. In this manner a markedly good view of the fundamental organisational characteristics of each organism and their methods of food capture is Seen. Plezcrobrachia pileus is shown capturing copepods; Bevoe gracilis is filmed during unsuccessful and successful attempts of eating tentacle pieces and entire Pleurobrachia pileus. A complete and detailed stiidy of the prey capture methods and of the organisation of Bolinopsis infundibulum is shown. Beroe cucumis is also filmed in detail. In addition the swimming behaviour and the feeding of Beroe cucumis on the mouth lobes, as well as the entire organism, of Bolinopsis infundibulum is presented.
