Report Details

This unusual jelly was photographed by Bob Kreinberg. It was about. 20 inches in diameter. It's the biggest we've ever see in 20 years of owning our house here. The photo was sent to two scientists for verification. Response: With those feathery tentacles it is almost certainly Cyanea capillata. Not seen as often as the sea nettle because they are usually found farther offshore and are solitary rather than a “bloomer.”This is an excellent example of the importance of people knowing our organization and being able to report their findings. Thank you for your observation and photograph, Bob.
