Jellyfish under microscope
This image can be found on page 18 of the January 1960 issue of the Indiana Alumni Magazine. The caption reads, in full: "Photographed by high-speed flash in an Indiana University zoology laboratory, a Hoosier jellyfish swims past the end of a pencil. It's a member of the genus Craspedacusta, the only freshwater jellyfish in North America. They're found in a few lakes and ponds in Indiana and a few other states. This one came from a flooded quarry near Bloomington. It travels by jet propulsion, as water is forced out behind by contraction of the bell-shaped body. Since they are one of the simplest of multi-cellular animals, the tiny jellyfish are proving a useful medium for research on zoological problems. Charles Lytle, graduate student from Crawfordsville, is using the Hoosier jellyfish for studying the evolution and distribution of this species."
