Turritopsis - West Coast

Currently washing up on our west coast shores are Turritopsis, with the first one found in Bayleys Beach in Jan 2017 by @simonnicholas then in Mar 2017 @jacqui-nz found more at Karekare and contacted me to see if I had seen them. Needless to say I was off and found them out on the Tohe - 90 Mile Beach. How many more can we find? http://inaturalist.nz/observations/5220928 is the obs with lots of info about these :)

I'm sure I saw these in Porangahau (east coast) a couple of months ago, but I can't seem to find the photos I took. Maybe they were out of focus. I'll have to keep an eye out now!

Now that is interesting - @lisa_bennett - different coast even. If you can find your blurry photos put them up - as long as I can see the blurred red etc I would agree - and then that way the distribution of just west coast would change! Mind you, I did not look for them on the east coast so may do that today :)
