How to use "Anemopsis" in context?

The anemopsis or anemone occurs in various marine habitats across the world. Typically an anemopsis exhibits radial symmetry with a cup-like swelling at the centre of the bell. These organs vary in size from a few centimetres to several metres in diameter and can grow to fill almost their entire bell.

The anemopsis photosynthesizes by capturing sunlight with its long tentacles and converting the energy into organic molecules that the organism can use to build its tissues. The tentacles can be seen as a means of exchanging water and nutrients with the surrounding environment.
