    Where is it from? Several long-armed octos live in muck- do you have other pics and maybe we can narrow it down?

    This should be the site you're referring to? It states the Philippines as locus; I'll go a googling :smile:

    Status report: not much luck, we'll have to stick to Octopus sp. for the time being... I wonder who so far has looked at indo-australian octopusses as a speciation model, forget Darwin's fiches, here come JC45's octopusses :grin:
