Terrific find, Chris! This is a wonderful example of how the life cycles of the various Cnidarian "jellies" are complex and equally fascinating. The next step is that the polyp's feeding tentacles will be assimilated and medusae are released. The tiny, disc-shaped medusae grow into the magnificent adults we see.
Thank you for the ID - we couldn't figure out what these were, and certainly had never seen them before.
