Abstract: For the second year running and much to the dismay of locals and tourists alike, our beaches are infested by the Mediterranean Mauve Stinger, Pelagia Iloctiluca, so called because it is a purple coloured, open sea (pelagic) jellyfish which exhibits a weak bioluminescence and therefore shines with a faint green light in the dark. By popular account, this seems to be a particularly bad year, and jellyfish slings are increasingly being attended to by family physicians. and occasionally by dermatologists. A number of articles on the subject have appeared in the local press.
