A new rare jellyfish has been discovered and it’s huge

a new species of jellyfish swimming

This alien-like jellyfish was spotted on a diving excursion in Kavieng, Papua New Guinea by scuba diver Dorian Borcherds. After capturing the footage, Dorian tried to identify the jellyfish with the help of his daughter using a jellyfish app, but found no matches in the app’s database. Later, after posting the video to a forum they received some feedback stating that the jellyfish might be the same as one caught on the Great Barrier Reef in May 1997 called Chirodectes maculatus. Upon further analysis it was determined that the jellyfish appears to be a new, undiscovered species.
