Found at 8am marooned on the beach within the Teign estuary. Note the foot to indicate size. Put me off swimming!
No interactions present.
They are reportedly not able to sting humans.
I was foolhardy enough to try to get a beached one back in the water (using gardening gloves & a bit of netting), but got stung on the arms. It was as painful as a nettle sting & lasted about as long. NB it seems(to me) most likely that any sizeable beached jellyfish is paralyzed by the landing & so can't be 'rescued'
calls Rhizostoma octopus "Barrel jellyfish". NBN distribution map shows a single 10km square for it in Devon, which happens to be right at the mouth of the Teign estuary, which looks good for your ID.
look quite convincing as well. I will retitle this observation.
Incidentally, where there is an ID posted which you think is correct, just click 'I agree' rather than posting a new ID - it's called 'add a revision' for a reason! If there's a particular reason why you agree, post it in the comments, as you have here
Record your ladybird sightings!
