    This genus contains the smallest species of decopods (growing to a max of about a 6 mm mantle length)!

    If you know the common name (if it has one :grin:) could you include it in your new efforts? I looked this one up to see if it was the one commonly called the cockatoo squid (NOT) and read this on Wikipedia:

    Yes, of course! Common names are fun too! Will have that info in the future!

    :lol: I did not mean to suggest going back to all the great stuff you've already added. We are more likely to see the common names on anything that shows up in the media. Even including it on the title would be good so that it could be most easily searchable.
