These undated images released by 'Science' show an Erenna specimen, a deep sea relative of the jellyfish, found off the coast of California, and the first-know marine invertebrates to produce red luminescent light. Top left, the Erenna specimen; bottom left, a partial view showing the fluorescing appendages or tentilla; and right a further enlarged view of the red tentilla.
