Jellyfish in Greek sea

The “brown jellyfish” – The Cotylorhiza tuberculata, can be found all around Greek seas. It is harmless, so you can even hold it in your hands without fear.

Also known as blue jellyfish, the Rhizostoma pulmo is large and its “umbrella” has a bluish color with purple shades or a purple band on the outside. 

Also known as “moon jellyfish”, the Aurelia aurita jellyfish is the most common in Greece’s seas. Its “umbrella” is relatively flat and transparent. 

The most unpleasant is the sting of the purple jellyfish (Pelagia noctiluca), which can be quite painful, but not particularly dangerous.
