actually this photo is the only thing left with me. the octo died within a couple of days. there was no eyespots on the body. the mantle length was about 2 cm and the arm length would have been nearly 7 cm.
Its often impossible to find the scientific name for your pet octopus. Many species are difficult to discern from photographs and its unlikely that your distributor knows where and how it was collected.
