Mexco Phyllorhiza specimens (see below) might be the result of The Australian Spotted Jellyfish is native to the southwestern Pacific, where it feeds primarily on various snail species. Jellyfishes play a key role in marine food webs as predators of zooplankton, thereby reducing an important resource for larval finfishes (), and as predators of fish eggs and juveniles (Purcell and Arai, 2001).By way of example, the hydromedusan, Portuguese man-of-war Physalia physalis, is a species native to the Atlantic Ocean that has invaded the Mediterranean Sea … occurring in Florida in the central Indian River Lagoon near the With this jellyfish being found in California waters over to the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic waters it is a threat to Texas' coastal ecosystems.
