A re-description of Lensia asymmetrica Stepanjants, 1970 (Siphonophorae, Diphyidae)
P.R. Pugh and F. Pagès

Many, well-preserved anterior nectophores of Lensia asymmetrica Stepanjants, 1970 (Siphonophorae, Diphyidae) have been found in recent collections from the Southern Ocean. These show that there is not a superficial and incomplete reticulation present on their surfaces, as previous described. In association with this material, many eudoxid bracts, and a few posterior nectophores and gonophores have been found. These are attributed to the same species and descriptions given of all these parts.
