    Looking for an ID on these octopus species. Found a few specimens ranging from about 20cm - 80cm diameter. Found around Nhulunbuy NT.

    Would also love to know whether this species is venomous or not.

    Thanks :)

    My guess is one of one of the macropus complex octopuses. Here are the two pages of the mostly candidates from Mark Norman's Cephalopods of the World.
