It is not an Irukandji Jellyfish, as they are so fragile that they would be killed by the bump against the glass this thing takes. I'm not 100% sure if it is a Chironex fleckeri, as this particular jellyfish was very small. Could have been a baby?

I've been contacted by a marine biologist called Bastian Bentlage who co-wrote a paper on Japanese box jellies and this little guy (the bell is about one inch/3cm wide) is quite probably a specimen of a recently discovered subspecies of Chironex called yamaguchii.
