So...I'll be gone for a week or so to go to diving wit the Philippines, and as a school project, I need help some help since we all need to do a research on some local marine creatures there, and I chose cephs, any good sites that could help me find some cephs living in the Philippines?
Would Tree Of Life be good, or is there another site out there dealing with tropic octos?

I don't know, but I want to say "have a wonderful time!" -- I wish I had gotten a trip like that as a school project!

:snorkel: Thank you, but still I need help on the research!! Please?

You could try to track down this reference:
Voss, G.L. 1964. Cephalopods of the Philippines. Bull. US Natl. Mus. , (234):180

or sometimes:

Voss, G.L. 1963. Cephalopods of the Philippine Islands. Bulletin of the United States National Museum 234, 1180.
(this one looks more accurate)

It's too old to be online as a PDF, though; you'd probably need to go to a university library and copy it from the journal or something. For some reason, it doesn't show up well in journal searches, although it looks like the full name of the journal is "Bulletin of the United States National Museum" --

there is a site I found with google to look for libraries that carry it:
http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/wcpa/top3mset/097ebafce0096d05.html

it doesn't list any in Hong Kong, though, but who knows if it's complete.

Anyway, probably too obscure to be helpful, but hey, I tried...

edit: this is more useful:

http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/wc...C8A5E9C21C58E4038.three&recno=1&zip=hong+kong

there is a copy of the book form in Hong Kong! (I'm going from memory that you live in HK; your profile says "not present" now -- if I'm remembering wrong, put your actual location in the location box...)
