stranded in great numbers on beaches. They are bioluminescent: have an ability to produce light in the form of flashes when the medusa is stimulated by turbulence created by waves or by a ship’s motion. Stinging of this jellyfish produce remarkable effects on human skin, such as erythema, swelling, burning and vesicles, and at times further severe dermonecrotic, cardio- and neurotoxic effects, which are particularly dangerous in sensitive persons.
