    I only remember two species were noted when Paradox got his "white" cuttle egg. As I recall, his broad club egg was opaque so I am going with Flamboyant.

    I think you win CG, I went back and looked at Paradox's thread and the eggs look the same.

    Sepia latimanus it is. I have eggs at work. Very excited.
