    I'd say A. aculeatus

    I was thinking the same. It looks way to thin to be O. vulgaris.

    It has many of the signs it is an A. Aculeatus, but i have not seen that green color with them. its not vulgaris, the arm to mantle ratio is not correct.

    Abdopus aculeatus can be pretty green - especially if the color temperature of the flash is cool. See attached photo.

    The starlike pattern around the eye is the dead giveaway, here...

    Really, I didn't know that. So the star pattern around the eye is always present in A. aculeatus?
