The toxin isolated from nematocysts of Chrysaora
is known to depolarise nerve and muscle membranes and to increase the frequency of miniature end-plate potentials.
lactea is also one of the most frequent and abundant species from the region.

Numerical increases and distributional shifts of Chrysaora
quinquecirrha (Desor) and Aurelia aurita (Linne) (Cnidaria: Scyphozoa) in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Off the coast of Alaska, another group of researchers looked at populations of the jellyfish Chrysaora
melanaster in the Bering Sea.
More precisely, it is a Pacific sea nettle, Chrysaora

On the other hand, Breitberg has found that the Bay's gelatinous species--its comb jellies (Mnemiopsis leidyi) and stinging sea nettles (Chrysaora

(Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) in the Southern California Bight, with Notes on Unusual Occurences of Other warm Water Species in the Area.
Recent studies in Chesapeake Bay have shown that in one day a population of the scyphomedusa Chrysaora
quinquecirrha can reduce the copepod community by more than 90%.
Known only by its species name, Chrysaora
achlyos (kris-AH-oh-rah ACK-lee-us), the creature sported 9-meter (30-foot)-long tentacles riddled with stinging cells called cnidocytes (NYE-doh-sites).
We tested predation on fish larvae by two predators, juvenile striped bass (Morone saxatilis), a percicthyid fish, and the sea nettle (Chrysaora
quinquecirrha), a scyphomedusan jellyfish.
