“Fried Egg Jellyfish” (Phacellophora camtschatica)
Also known as the “egg yolk jellyfish”, the fried egg jellyfish is a species of Phacellophorid jellyfish (it was formerly considered a Ulmarid) which can found in cool-water areas of most of the worlds oceans. Like most jellyfish P. camtschatica is a pelagic drifter, moving with the current feeding on a range of zooplankton and occasionally other jellyfish. Because P. camtschaticsa has a relatively weak sting it is generally is a home for small crustaceans which ride on its bell and steal food from it.
