    The person who took the pictures, Tom S., has given me permission to share the photos. Per Tom:

    excellent work with the octocast. That poor octopus, I'm not savy enough to name in on sight so I'll just leave it to someone who can.

    I don't see any obvious wounds to it though... ( I mean gaffing usually requires a big log stick and some big hooks, no?)

    Urr, I might well be expressing some hobby-horse bias here, but that positively looks like a Tremoctopus sp. to me....

    Short pair 1, extended webbing to pair 2 and tiger striping is a lot like T. robsoni, but that is also a "violaceus" like violet mantle (...), given the fact that in T. violaceus pair 1 is actually the longest, ending in veritable strings extending from the webbing, unless autotomized,..., it should really be,..., :confused: ah, my kingdom for a matching male :grin:

    Let's face it, you can't tell from photographs with these.

    "poor guy :sad:" should at least read "poor girl :sad:"...

    Tolweb has this magnificent picture of a free swimming T. violaceus off the Florida coast, courtesy of Cassandra L. Cox. For T. robsoni I was relying on Steve's 1999 sketch.
