I lived in Hampton Va. for many years and am quite familiar with the jelly-fish found there, but have never heard them referred to as stinging nettles. I am only familiar with the term nettle applied to plants. You are lucky that you had no more serious a reaction to those jelly-fish. Here in Florida we have recently had box jellyfish show up (I am used to the Portuguese man-o-war, but these are far worse). A single sting from the box jellyfish can be fatal.

Thanks Thomas. The box jelly fish are a real danger in Queensland here in Australia, too.

The box jellyfish is new to the Florida area and I don't know how bad the infestation will become. I hope that it will not be too common, and I doubt that any natural controls are present.
