Mushroom Cap Jellyfish Photos

Frequently, visitors to my Florida Beaches website, www.beachhunter.net, will send in photos of jellyfish they've encountered in hopes that I can help them identify the creature. I'm no jellyfish expert, but I'm getting better at making identifications.

Recently, H. Tiner sent in some photos of a jellyfish she photographed on La Costa island in southwest Florida. I've identified it as a Mushroom Cap Jellyfish (Rhopilema verrilli). It's the first one of it's kind that I've seen. So with her permission, I've posted the photos to my jellyfish page so everyone can see.

You can see the photos of the Mushroom Cap Jellyfish here.
