|Anyone seen living Apolemia with swimming bells?|

After 37 years of diving Catalina off-and-on, I finally observed my first living Apolemia with a swimming bell still attached. I occasionally see the detached strings of polyps, which I've called the "frayed rope siphonophore" but this is the first time I've seen one with the bell. Curious as to whether others have???
Here are the images of the one with the swimming bell:
