Morphology of the youngest medusae of an immortal jellyfish Turritopsis from Shirahama and Okinawa (Japan), Eilat (Israel) and Porto Cesareo (Italy) is compared to detect any difference among them. But no outstanding distinction is found among them that obtained by culture from their polyps kept for up to 2-6 years. No GFP is detected in all of them. Therefore, for the present, only molecular distinction might be possible for species demarcation.
