The sea-nettle is the marine creature today called the “jellyfish”, with a round body and dangling, frond-like tentacles.  The creature was known in period – the illustration is taken from Gulielmi Rondeletii’s Libri de piscibus marinis: in quibus verae piscium, published in 1554 – but no examples of the sea-nettle’s use in period armory have been found.  The sea-nettle has its tentacles to base by Society default.

Luciana Pesce bears as a badge:  A sea-nettle gules.

Ceara inghean Ui hUisce bears:  Argent, a sea-nettle purpure, between in chief two mullets azure, a ford proper.
