Abstract:Several species in the genus Craspedacusta (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa, Limnomedusae, Olindiidae) are widely distributed in China. New records of distribution and new species of the genus were reported in recent years. Craspedacusta was reported to be found in Anhui province but without detailed morphological description. We carried out a primary study to describe the morphologic characteristics of the freshwater medusa, which was found in a swag in the valley of Meihe River in Jinzhai county, Anhui province. We identified the species by its umbrella shape, width of velum, number of statocyst and tentacles, shape and arrangement of nematocyst warts. We suggested that the freshwater medusae found in Jinzhai county should be Craspedacusta kawaii Oka, 1907. Overall, this is the first detailed species identification and primary study of the Craspedacusta found in Anhui province.
