Porpita porpita is actually a colonial hydroid, not a jellyfish. The hydroids can range in color from turquoise to yellow and resemble the tentacles of a jellyfish. They are often seen in large aggregations, and it is not uncommon for them to be washed up on the beach in large numbers.
These incredible hydroids Found can be found in tropical and sub-tropical Australian, Indo-Pacific, and Atlantic waters.
