A few about this morning. Various sizes. Any particular 'type'?
No interactions present.
Does that mean these are unusual (rare) in my part of the world? There were a couple of others in the water at the end of the pier.
See the 1st Ispot Aequorea , http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/277498 for my comments. I cant find anywhere that says if they're rare or not (but it's not in 2 of the 3 Brit sealife sites,marlin.ac.uk & habitas.org.uk). But http://www.glaucus.org.uk/Aequorea.htm says the genus "is often not recognised and any reports are welcome" (dated 2011)(glaucus is the journal of Brit marine life study society). So I phoned the marlin contact no. who said they'd add it to their records so I advise you do the same. By the way this site doesn't appear in either the coastal or marine habitats so you could do to edit it to 1 or the other.
This one again looks to me like Aequorea vitrina
I tried to report sighting to glaucus.org, but they made it so DIFFICULT that I gave up! They can do without my sighting!
Battered it may be, but distinctive it is.
David, I know how difficult it is sometimes to the National Bodies to accept a sighting.
By now (18 months later) you will have sorted that but http://www.mcsuk.org/scotland would always be interested to respond to sightings.
Oh if only we had we had this sort of system
