Discussion in 'ID Requests' started by tonmo, Jul 7, 2014.
I got this email this morning... any thoughts?
I would say it's not an arrow squid - they don't get that big. I think it might be a Totorodes, another (larger) ommastrephid, but it's hard to tell. I can't really give an ID without seeing some features close up (like funnel-locking cartilage or the beak). Since we have a squid taxonomy lab in NZ, he could always ship it to us? Either that or if we could get some close up pictures we could probably narrow it down.
Thanks Heather! I've pointed him to this thread.
