The Scyphomedusa Deepstaria is a creature with a strange appearance with a bag-like appearance and a campaign that can be opened more than a meter wide. Specs on the identity of this mystery blob has become a YouTube sensation, provoking debates and entertaining about his identity. This Deepstaria reticle video (described by Larson, et al., In 1988) is especially unusual because the jellyfish is blown by the impellers of the remotely operated vehicle and eventually turns completely upside down. In this video, we show some more natural-looking examples of the Deepstaria reticulum and enigmatic Deepstaria, along with other deep-sea related species.
