Wow Renata, thanks for sharing this incredible encounter with us! We've chosen it as spotting of the day!

"Crown Jellyfish may be perceived as immortal. They have a complex life cycle in which they take on a number of different forms. They go from polyp stage, a plant like bulb at the bottom of the ocean floor, to full adulthood and can revert back to the polyp stage after becoming an adult. How wild is that!"

Amazing colours! great spotting! Congratulations.
It's so frustrating to find no documentation on a species.

This species doesn't have a Wiki article or anything, so I had to link to a photo from someone's online portfolio, but this is N. setouchina!

This is a gorgeous photo of a beautiful animal! This kind of jellyfish is called a crown jellyfish, and specifically I think it's Netrostoma setouchina. I will suggest the ID and link to a site with some photos! Wonderful spotting, these photos are amazing.
