I am posting this as a 'reply' to a comment by matatur suggesting a top view to clarify the issue as to whether it is actually an aurelia aurita. I hope it helps.

Though I am not an expert, so I donít want to comment on Identification but I must say it is a well captured shot. I can feel the difficulties to capture this type of animal.
Well done my friend

Beautiful species, well captured with details. tfs.

This one surely is an Aurelia aurita Yanni, please take into consideration the presence of numerous short tentacles at the rim of the umbrella versus the not so numerous, but very long tentacles seen in your previous post. Here, the four roundish gonads are easily seen within the transparent umbrella, but their presence was not so obvious in the former image. They are not the same species.
