Great stuff, Tony and Carol!

And what's this about the pelegic octo who got gaffed?
Chrono:

The person who took the pictures, Tom S., has given me permission to share the photos. Per Tom:
I am a fishery biologist with the Hawaii longline observer program. We field biologists on longline vessels. Our man Boris Tutubalin gaffed this critter aboard on the 28th of august at the approximate location below

what is it?

mahalo,

Tom

Urr, I might well be expressing some hobby-horse bias here, but that positively looks like a Tremoctopus sp. to me....

Short pair 1, extended webbing to pair 2 and tiger striping is a lot like T. robsoni, but that is also a "violaceus" like violet mantle (...), given the fact that in T. violaceus pair 1 is actually the longest, ending in veritable strings extending from the webbing, unless autotomized,..., it should really be,..., :confused: ah, my kingdom for a matching male :biggrin2:

Let's face it, you can't tell from photographs with these.

"poor guy :sad:" should at least read "poor girl :sad:"...

Tolweb has this magnificent picture of a free swimming T. violaceus off the Florida coast, courtesy of Cassandra L. Cox. For T. robsoni I was relying on Steve's 1999 sketch.
