Phyllorhiza punctata is a species of jellyfish, also known as the Australian spotted jellyfish or the White-spotted jellyfish.  It is native to the southwestern Pacific, where it feeds primarily on  zooplankton. P. punctata average 45-50 cm in bell diameter but there had  been a maximum reported size of 62 cm. hey have only a mild venom and are not considered a threat to humans.  However, their ability to consume plankton and the eggs and larvae of  important fish species is cause for concern. Each jellyfish can filter  as much as 13,200 gallons of sea water per day. While doing that, it  ingests the plankton that native species need. (Wiki)
