Cyclomedusa is included in the cnidarian section but it is not a jellyfish, but a medusoid.
The medusoids are those extinct beings similar to jellyfish and that inhabited at the end of the Precambrian. It is considered that they would be one of the oldest animals, since fossils have been found from approximately 580 million years ago, and they were part of the Ediacaran fauna.
Initially it was thought that they were swimmers, in fact it was later concluded that they were benthic discs anchored to the seabed or semi-buried.
