This genus contains three species of squid. The pyroteuthids can be identified by the presence of 13+ hooks on each arm, and a row of hooks along the club. They also have a variety of photophores, including "lidded photophores" on the eyes.

Another tiny :roll: request as I am enjoying these, if you can find and post the max/ave size it would help to visulalize them better since we have no reference in the photos.

Oo! That's a good idea! Although, since many genera have multiple species, varying in size, that might be challenging for some groups. I can definitely provide a range of sizes though and try to get as specific as possible! Thanks for the idea D! :heee:
