It looks more like a Messie beak to me.
Yup, that's what I thought, too. The attachment points for the buccal muscles are seriously large. The scientist who collected it might not have been familiar with Mesonychoteuthis.

I'd really like a resin casting of a Messie beak. Wouldn't you?

can't believe I didn't bring my clarke out to university with me. What was I thinking? I would definitely third the non-Archie agreement, though some expert opinions might be well appreciated....hmm?

Cheers!
