A local fisherman discovered the mysterious sea creature on Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast.
Lisa Gershwin from the CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Centre suspects the jellyfish is a new species. She said it was likely the jellyfish belonged to the genus Thysanostoma family due to its long tentacles.
Jellyfish of the Thysanostoma group have unique metre-long tentacles known as “oral arms”, which are lined with microscopic “mouths”.
