    Is it a jellyfish, a whale placenta, or what?
    Could mysterious ocean blob be deepstaria enigmatica or stygiomedusa gigantea? | Mail Online

    Apparently it's a jellyfish called Deepstaria enigmatica

    Link to an article about it on Deep Sea News: Solving the Mystery of the Placental Jellyfish

    The DSN guys are good. A trusted source, imo.

    The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) uploaded a new video to YouTube a few days ago that features some clips of both Deepstaria reticulum and Deepstaria enigmatica. Unlike the viral video that did the rounds this one shows these Scyphomedusae in a more natural state. A lot of other jellyfish in the video too.


    It's narrated by a guy called Prof. Steve Haddock - good name for a marine biologist.
