Just out of curiosity, I am wondering if we ever came around to identifying this strange beasty...

Interesting to note that arm pair #4 looks as "jointed" as all pairs from the mystery Magnapinna squid from the Gulf of Mexico do. It's almost as if they take over the role of tentacles to some extent.
