Just out of curiosity, I am wondering if we ever came around to identifying this strange beasty...
I wonder if it's still possible to name the species (though determining it's place in taxonomy would be quite a challenge). Here are some videos of the squid taken from an expedition in northern Hawaii.
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.
So they are tentacles, after all!
Wow on the dot.
