    They say the cuttle is metasepia sp. But it looks like a bandensis to me. Am i right? The last cuttle they had was a bandensis but they labeled it officinalis. Will they ever get it right:banghead:

    The picture looks like bandensis but I don't know how to tell a juvenile officinalis from an adult bandensis for certain. It's definitely not a picture of Metasepia... Some dealers do put up "placeholder" pictures, though, so it probably could be any of the above...

    Looks just like a bandensis to me.

    It says "what you see is what you get"

    The officinalis picture looks like a bandensis to me as well.
