Crossota norvegica is a species of jellyfish in the phylum Cnidaria in the genus Crossota. It is closely related to Crossota millsae. It lives at depths below 1,000 m (3,300 ft) in the Arctic Ocean.

Philatelic error

Crossota norvegica appeared on a stamp issued by Canada in 2007 to commemorate the International Polar Year. Unfortunately, the name on the stamp was given as Crossota millsaeare, a misspelling of Crossota millsae.
