    Looks like an Abdopus of sorts.

    You think that's the Gender of form Abdopus, you have an idea about this specie?

    I agree with AM, Probably something of the Abdopus genus. Maybe even an Octopus Capricornicus. Do you know where it was caught? and how about some measurements.

    After looking at some other pictures of abaculus I retract my statement.

    Maybe Dr. Caldwell will see this thread.

    The second and third photos look like replicas of Norman's capricornicus, especially the pattern of the large spots on the mantle. As Tommy suggested, if you can estimate size (capricornicus is small 4 cm mantle and 20 cm arms) and give the capture location that information would be very useful. If you have access to Norman's Cephalopods A World Guide look on page 239.

    Some books you read and enjoy them once, ones like this are in constant use.
