The warty comb jelly, Leucothea multicornis, was noted off the Mediterranean coast of Israel in May and June 2014. Though recorded multiple times in the western and central Mediterranean Sea, this is the first record of the species from the eastern basin. The transient localized blooms and longer-term persistent increases in native and alien ctenophore abundance indicate changes in the structure and function of the Levantine ecosystem.
