    A species called Craspedacusta sowerbyi, while not a “true” jellyfish in the scyphozoan family, is called a freshwater jellyfish. The difference between the two families is that freshwater jellyfish have a body part called a velum, a shelf that extends inward from the bottom of their bell. These animals, only 25 millimeters across and shaped like a flattened half-circle, are native to the Amazon but have been introduced to almost every part of the globe by accidental shipping.
