I can't see the Can't find it button. I cleared out my browser, & still can't see it.

Ahh thanks @michaelb looks like it's not showing on the newer regions but should definitely be working in CNM and the busier sites. First click let's you select from the global taxonomy, second click allows you to enter in a brand new species name manually.

There are several species of Physalia. They look very similar.

Ok. All that matters is that we ran up and down the beach and popped them all.
