Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 1.9 cm WD male/unsexed; (Ref. 121705)
Smallest species yet described in the genus. Sting potential is not yet known; however, it must be considered as potentially dangerous because of its phylogenetic relationship to Mallo kingi, a lethal species, and M. maxima, a species causing Irukandji syndrome (Ref. 116579). Little is known of its ecology. However, some observations on its holotype were made: specimen was swimming in a northerly direction with outgoing tide past a coral bommie; many other plankton and similar-looking jellyfishes were encountered along with it (Ref. 116579).
