I just shared this with a friend of mine with the last name "Grimaldi." I must say, I'm a wee bit jealous. I with there was a squid that shared my last name! This is a bizarre one for sure!

OMG! I like both those options! However... you may want to have a word with Heather... or else you are going to be stuck with a squid that looks like it popped out of an animated cartoon. (Recall the Cranchiidae family thread for references).

While you are looking, O. or S. monti montyi montiteuthis or a similar find would be special to locate.

I DO have a seahorse: H. denise but no O. denisei :biggrin2:

I don't think I deserve to have any creature named after me :boohoo: not that I wouldn't love to have a a VanReenenteuthis. It doesn't have such a great ring to it like Tonmoteuthis does.

Is there a Kuboderateuthis? Is O. shea just a coincidence? :wink:
