    Valbyteuthis appears to be a junior synonym of Planctoteuthis, a member of the Chiroteuthidae.

    Have a look at this for more details:

    Tree of Life: Planctoteuthis

    Hope that link is of help!

    re: genus

    thanks a lot! This is part of a school project for me (a very long and arduous project at that), and I really needed that answer. Thank you!

    Phil was spot on before, Armstrong; I hadn't responded on this thread because the matter had been resolved.

    Cheers
