    Selenoteuthis scintillans is the single species of this genus. Like other members of its family, it has photophores on its eyes, mantle and tentalces.

    I vote Elton Squid (big, bedazzling eyes as in Elton's sunglasses of the 70's).

    :shock: 8-)

    Well according to this website, histioteuthis is already named the jeweled squid.

    May I suggest the bedazzled squid? Between Eltons glasses in the 70's (I like the idea Tony) and the bedazzling fad (what was that, the 80's) this is definitely looking like a squid from another era.

    I thought about bedazzled but I didn't know if it was a copywrited term...

    Oh, I don't know about that ... How about BlingBling squid. It sounds a little oriental and makes use of the jewels :sagrin:
