Aww beautiful! The Mauve Stinger, (Pelagia noctiluca) - literally the sea-swimming nightlight. As its name implies, this is a species of pelagic Jelly that is capable of bioluminescence. This is assumed to take place through the typical mode for Cnidarian luminescence, a Luciferin-Luciferase reaction in which Luciferin (literally “Light-bringer”) is combined with Adrenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and oxidised by enzyme reaction which immediately produces photoemi
