    The genus Chiroteuthis vary greatly in shape and size. One unifying feature they all appear to have is noticably long and thick 4th arms. They are also known for the elaborate photophore patterns on their body (which differ depending on species.)

    This amazing video by MBARI features a variety of deep sea squid, 3 of which are chiroteuthids, so i thought i would post it here. (I'm sure it's been posted somewhere else already haha.)
    Enjoy!

    @Tentagal, I started a Members' Publications thread in the Octopus' Den that tries to keep a running list of members' published works. If you will start an entry with your TONMO name and your publication name, I will add you to my Google Scholar search and add publications as I see them there or happen upon them elsewhere. Members can modify their own threads for a short time but supporters can edit indefinitely so if you have items to add after your initial post, be sure I see them (using @DWhatley in a referencing post) -- even if you become a supporter :grin:. For the initial post you can post as little as the two names or as much as you would like. The format is loose but I will modify it a bit to fit the general look and feel so don't worry much about formatting. The publications do not have to be in journals. YouTube videos, magazines, or any other public paper are encouraged to be posted, preferably with links.
