Namibia

Introduction: Frilly-mouthed jellyfish (Chrysaora sp.) have 24 long tentacles and between 16 and 32 stubbier ones. The manubrium, the structure that hangs beneath the bell that ends in the mouth, has a frilly appearance, hence the common name. When fully expanded this feature extends to 4 trailing 'tails'.

Distribution: Throughout Namibian coastal waters including Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, Henties Bay, Torra and Terrace Bays, Luderitz down to the mouth of the Orange River.

Diet: Feeds on largish planktonic animals.

Colouration: Transparent blue bell with an opaque white edge.

Breeding:  Eggs develop into tiny polyps, which attach themselves to the sea bottom.

Max size: 12cm.
