Pelagia noctiluca, (Águilas, Spain) by Alfonso Gonzalez: In Latin, Pelagia means "of the sea", nocti stands for night and luca means light and As its name implies P. noctiluca has the ability to bioluminesce.

This flashing is only of relatively short duration and gradually fades. en.wikipedia.org/... #Jellyfish
