all right so per jesse kelly and agreement from mike v. and fernando, this is definitely a (very badly-damaged) ancistrocheirus.



per jesse, the tentacle club morphology aligns with that genus much more so than a cycloteuthid, and the characteristic photophores are briefly visible on the mantle here and here
