Sea Gooseberry
Description:

To be honest I have no idea what this is. I am guessing it to be a juvenile jellyfish?? I found it washed up on the beach at Fleswick Bay on the north west coast. It was about the size of my thumbnail. There were actually three of them and I thought maybe they were juveniles. You can see the detail on the body which is remarkable. But there were no tentacles, so maybe this is something else?

Thanks ophrys! A sea gooseberry is much more likely, I had forgotten about them.
