  Systematics of Cubozoa, by UCMP
Until she finishes this project, we are presenting a phylogenetic representation of the current classification scheme for Cubozoa.
However, when it was observed that the cubozoan polyp and life cycle were rather different than those of scyphozoans, Cubozoa was placed on its own.
Still others have argued that Cubozoa is more closely related to Hydrozoa (as shown to the right).

Jellyfish (also called jellies or sea jellies as they are not true fish, nor are they made of jelly) are animals that belong to Phylum Cnidaria, included in the class Scyphozoa (from Greek skyphos "cup" and zoon "animal").
The name "jellyfish" is also often used for the related classes of medusae (Hydrozoa) and box jellyfish (Cubozoa).

 Jellyfish of the Month
The primary distinguishing traits (glossary) for Cubozoa are metamorphosis of the polyp stage into a single medusa and a lack of polyp features such as a set of four intramesogleal muscles.
While the latter features are present in stauromedusans, they lack strobilation (glossary) and instead undergo a single metamorphosis at the oral end of the polyp to produce a benthic, stalked adult.
Prior to Cubozoa becoming a class, these five taxa constituted Scyphozoa and therefore this name, rather than being constrained to refer to the latter three groups (as suggested by Marques and Collins), could have been altered to once again have its more traditional meaning.

 Cnidaria
Because polyps are typically sessile, and only some medusae possess sensory structures (the most sophisticated occur in the Cubozoa; Pearse and Pearse 1978), cnidarians are generally believed to be passive predators, feeding on prey items that blunder into their tentacles.
Indeed, the medusa dominates the life cycle of members of the classes Cubozoa and Scyphozoa (Cubozoa was formerly considered an order of Scyphozoa, and some specialists still consider it as such).
Life cycles of the Hydrozoa are the most diverse in the phylum: although the polyp is the more conspicuous and persistent stage in most taxa, some lack the medusa phase, whereas others lack the polyp phase.

 Visual Ecology and Functional Morphology of Cubozoa (Cnidaria)1 Integrative and Comparative Biology - Find Articles
The class Cubozoa (Werner, 1975) is the smallest class within the phylum Cnidaria with only: one order (Cubomedusae), two families (Carybdeidae and Chiropdropidae), seven genera, and roughly two dozen species.
In spite of this small size there is a lack of consensus on the naming and description of species.
Originally grouped as an order within the class Scyphozoa, the Cubozoa were elevated to class status once research revealed the magnitude of the differences between this and other cnidarian groups (Werner, 1973; Werner et al., 1976).

Jellyfish are any planktonic marine member of a group of invertebrate animals composed of about 200 described species of the class Scyphozoa (phylum Cnidaria) or of the class Cubozoa, which was formerly considered an order of Scyphozoa.
The term, jellyfish, is also often used in referring to certain other cnidarians that have a medusoid (saucer- or bell-shaped) body form, such as hydromedusae, the siphonophores (including even the

The primary polyp produces additional polyps asexually, by budding, stolonic outgrowth, or some other process, to form a clone or a colony.
At the appropriate time, determined perhaps by size of the colony or environmental conditions, rather than or in addition to polyps, medusae are produced asexually (in Cubozoa, each polyp metamorphoses into a medusa).
A comprehensive morphological cladistic analysis by Schuchert (1993) supports the basal position of Anthozoa with the Scyphozoa and Cubozoa being more closely related to each other than to Hydrozoa.
