Spain - Anemones
Anemones (class Anthozoa) belong to the coelenterate or Cnidaria. Disc jellyfish (discomedusan), Hydroidpolyps, Siphonophora and seawasps belong to the Cnidaria as well. Corals also belong to the class of the Anthozoans and they are subdivided in sixrays and eightrays. Deadmen`s fingers is the only representative of these groups that occurs in the Dutch waters. Deadmen`s fingers belongs to the group of the eightrays. All anemones possess nettle cells that are used to paralyze their pray before eating it. Please note, anemones are animals, not plants.
