This genus contains the smallest species of decopods (growing to a max of about a 6 mm mantle length)!

If you know the common name (if it has one :biggrin2:) could you include it in your new efforts? I looked this one up to see if it was the one commonly called the cockatoo squid (NOT) and read this on Wikipedia:

Idiosepius pygmaeus, also known as the Two-toned Pygmy Squid, is a species of bobtail squid native to the Indo-Pacific.

:lol: I did not mean to suggest going back to all the great stuff you've already added. We are more likely to see the common names on anything that shows up in the media. Even including it on the title would be good so that it could be most easily searchable.

The complete mitochondrial genome of the pygmy squid, Idiosepius (Cephalopoda: Decapodiformes): the first representative from the family Idiosepiidae
Nathan E. Hall, Jan Hanzak, A. Louise Allcock, Ira R. Cooke, Atsushi Ogura, and Jan M. Strugnell

Abstract
We report the first complete mitochondrial genome of the pygmy squid, Idiosepius, (Idiosepiidae). The mtDNA genome is 16,183 bp long with an AT content of 75.4%. All conserved metazoan mitochondrial genes are identified with the addition of a 1018 bp non-coding region. Idiosepius gene order most closely resembles that of the bobtail squid Semirossia (Sepiolidae)
