Mediterranean jelly or fried egg jellyfish/ medusa huevo frito o del Mediterráneo.

Cotylorhiza tuberculata

Description:

It seems that this jellyfish's sting has very little or no effect on humans. The smooth, elevated dome is surrounded by a gutter-like ring. The marginal lappets are elongated and subrectangular. Each mouth-arm bifurcates near its base and branches several times. In addition to some larger appendages there are many short, club-shaped ones that bear disk-like ends.

Habitat:

La Manga del Mar Menor, Cartagena, España.

Es probable, Lali. Voy a comprobarlo. Gracias.

Marta, no veo que tengas un patche especial para los polinizadores. Seguramente ha coincidido que han utilizado el spotting del polinizador para enviarte el patche de otra cosa, eso me ha pasado a mí en alguna ocasión.

No te imaginas cómo hemos disfrutado buceando, Mariajo. Tengo vídeos, pero aún no los he podido subir. A ver si lo consigo pronto.

Preciosas.
Veo que tú y Lali no habéis dejado nada por fotografiar en el fondo marino.
