    Looks more like a fungia than a mushroom to me... but then again mushroom is slang terminology that might not translate to research the same.

    Yeah, they mention in the article it's a fungia sp I think.

    pretty interesting :)

    Ya Mitch, it's referenced as Fungia scruposa.

    that looks cool! but do jellyfish spawn on the sandbed where they can be easily preyed upon?

    Not sure if all do, but many have polyp stage where they are stuck to a rock/substrate.
