Welcome to Wet Pixel, Macel. That's an interesting find. I haven't seen this before & while I suspect you're right I'm really not sure. Why don't you ask for assistance at www.JellyWatch.org or better yet, their Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/jellywatch The two sites are run by jelly specialist Steven Haddock & others at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. A post on Facebook should get you a rapid response. Please let us know what you find out.

We did get this image at jellywatch.org. It is a larvacean feeding web, possibly from Bathochordaeus. They are common in deep water, but must have been upwelled...!

Welcome to Wetpixel Beroe, and thanks for the update. It would be nice to have a jelly pro hanging around!
