Need Identification Box Jelly??
Description and Comments
Ridgid bell had knobs or wart like bumps on top of bell. Four purple tentacles. Was still alive. Don't know what kind it is. Returned back to water.
Type of organism
Definitely a box jelly.
Definitely a box jelly. Probably Tamoya haplonema. Wart-like bumps are stinging nematocysts, so it's best not to touch a specimen with these bumps.
Definitely looks like Tamoya.

WOW!! How cool!! I really love this site. I walk the beach regularly and when I see different things I always take pictures. I'm a marine biologist but deal with fish mostly so I am learning about jellies and loving it!!
