Closely related; same genus:

The largest recorded specimen found, washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870, had a bell (body) with a diameter of 7 feet 6 inches (2.29 m) and tentacles 120 feet (37 m) long.[2] Lion's mane jellyfish.

I ate sauteed jellyfish once in a Chinese seafood restaurant. It tasted like plain jello. How do they cook jellyfish in Louisiana?
