mauve stinger

Pelagia noctiluca


Pink and transparent. Scrunchy like tentacles. Spotted top. Small. Floats slowly.


Found this guy while snorkeling at Shell Island in Florida. I was in a small pool on the other side of some rocks by a lagoon. Right on the other side of the rocks there were dozens of jellyfish floating around. This guy must have found an opening and slipped in the pool.
