A male Carybdea sivickisi  with its tentacles intertwined with those of the female (only female's tentacles visible) produces a spermatophore. This spermatophore can be seen as several strands of sperm hanging down from the manubrium inside the bell. These bundles of sperm can be pale yellow to bright red in color.
