Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorImportance Turritopsis nutricula is often cited as the immortal jellfish. However, the species used in these studies was not T. nuticula, but the Mediterranean T. dohrnii. [details]

From regional or thematic species database
Trusted: edited by a thematic editorDistribution Turritopsis nutricula is likely not present along the European coasts; all well documented cases belong either to T. polycirrha (Keferstein, 1862) or to T. dohrnii (see Schuchert, 2004. The distribution of T. plycirrha is North-East Atlantic. T. nutricula is confined to the Western Atlantic [details]
