Lion's Mane syndrome
Lion's Mane Jellyfish
The lion's mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata) is the largest known species of jellyfish that are named for their showy, trailing tentacles reminiscent of a lion's mane.
The lion's mane's range is confined to cold waters of the Arctic, northern Atlantic, and northern Pacific Oceans, seldom found farther south than 42°N latitude. Similar jellyfish, which may be the same species, are known to inhabit seas near Australia and New Zealand. The largest recorded specimen found, washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870, had a bell (body) with a diameter of 7 feet 6 inches (2.29 m) and tentacles 120 feet (37 m) long.
Lion's Mane syndrome was coined by Professor Tom Doyle of the University College Cork.
