    The bottom part could be a ephyrae distorted by noise. It's big but possible. What makes you say medusa >4 tentacles?

    I think I see the tentacles going to the bottom right (it's better visible in the thumbnail). Can't you see them? (Or just an illusion?)

    I can see them, but I think they are the salinity/temperature/density effects. This does have the cross in the middle though, which I don't

    Oh clearly it looks like the other ones you posted. Those may very well be more developed stages after the ephyrae stage. Fabien?
