Very special thanks for the photos of Catostylus mosaicus to Ron DeCloux, USA.
Catostylus mosaicus inhabits bays and estuaries along the east and north coast of Australia.
Catostylus mosaicus is the most common large medusa in the eastern Australian coast, from Mooloolaba (Queensland) to New South Wales.
The Mosaic sea jelly can live for up to 13 months!
