    I found this little guy on an internet rabbit trail and wondered if anyone had seen it before. It looks like it might be a dwarf with some very interesting coloration.

    What a beautiful little animal! Only one row of suckers apparently so that narrows down the choices considerably.

    It looks like Amphioctopus aegina, but hard to tell for sure.

    Chances are you are the best ID bet

    Am I reading the little blips I found correctly? Is marginatus now a Amphioctopus and not just an Octopus?
