Abstract
    Asexual propagation is an underappreciated way of increasing the sessile population of the metagenetic Scyphozoa. Our studies on Sanderia malayensis have shown a great variety of asexual reproduction modes. A new mode of polyp asexual propagation is described. By integrating earlier reported modes occurring in other species we established a classification which may serve as a standard tool to describe asexual propagation in Scyphozoa.
