Chrysaora pacifica

From Openwaterpedia

noun - Chrysaora pacifica or the Japanese sea nettle, is a jellyfish in the family Pelagiidae. This common species is native to the northwest Pacific Ocean including Japan and Korea, but it was formerly confused with the larger and more northerly distributed Chrysaora melanaster. It typically has a bell with a diameter of 15–21 cm with a painful sting that can be dangerous to humans.
