Historical Context: Siphonophores are an order of the Hydrozoa, a class of marine invertebrates belonging to the phylum Cnidaria. They are colonial, but the colonies can superficially resemble jellyfish. Although they appear to be a single organism, each specimen is actually a colony of Siphonophora. The best known species is the dangerous Portuguese Man o' War. One individual in the group transforms itself into a gas-filled float. The others form stinging tentacles that kill prey.
