Portuguese man o'war (Physalia physalis) is not a jellyfish, however it produces a liquid mixture made up of three peptides:

* hypnotoxine, a neurotoxic poison, which arrests respiratory, circulatory and nervous systems; * thalaxineand * congestine, two allergens, which produce irritation and kill by anaphylactic shock.
