This is actually a ctenophore (comb jelly). Although comb jellies are gelatinous and resemble jellyfish, they belong to a different phylum. Ctenophores belong to the phylum Ctenophora and jellyfish to the phylum Cnidaria. A major difference between them is that ctenophores don't have stinging cells.
