Actually, that picture is of the "bell posture". This species also does the "balloon posture" where it hangs upside down and closes its web into a bubble.

Does it invert itself like vampyroteuthis (I see those little spiky feelers that people think will hurt you when they see vampy turn inside out) or actually hang with its mantle facing the sea floor?
