Attention Researchers in the Florida Keys:

Those charming little friends lovingly called "sea lice" are thick and
pesky in the neuston in Keys waters these days.  

What exactly are they?  I have heard everything from firecoral larvae to
small jelly's.  Or can several types of tiny cnideria produce the same
response in sensitive individuals?

To quote an old song:  "Gonna need an ocean ----- of calamine lotion" 

Happy scratching!
