Anyone catch the so-called hairy octopus in "Coral" The Marine Aquarium Magazine? They say it has not yet been scienfically described and only has been photographed a few times.

Interesting photo in Coral - but there's also a photo (not as good) in Cephalopods: A World Guide. It says there that the "hair" is actually branches of skin.
