Leidy's comb jelly
The warty comb jelly or sea walnut (Mnemiopsis leidyi) is a species of tentaculate ctenophore (comb jelly), originally native to the western Atlantic coastal waters. Three species have been named in the genus Mnemiopsis, but they are now believed to be different ecological forms of a single species M. leidyi by most zoologists.

The SeaLifeBase Project: Six combs a-sparkling
Ctenophore photo from Tumblr Comb jellies sparkle! Light refracted by 8 moving rows of comb-like plates inside their transparent bodies create this sparkling phenomenon as they move through the water. One of the most studied comb jellies is the sea walnut or Leidy’s comb jelly, Mnemiopsis leidyi, a native of Eastern United States and South American (Massachusetts to Argentina) waters [i] which was accidentally introduced in the Eastern Atlantic (likely via ballast waters) [ii].
