Scypho spotted from Iki Island
Description and Comments
Spotted this jellyfish (see photo) from the ferry dock in Ashibe, Iki Island, Japan. Bell diameter was probably less than than 10 cm. I have been told this is Rhizostoma octopus (which is not a valid species according to SeaLifeBase.org, = R. pulmo?) but it does not look the same as results from an image search online. Any advice you can provide on species identification would be appreciated.
