Slosarczykovia circumantarctica (try saying that three times fast) is thought to be one of the most common squid in antarctic waters. It's fairly large compared to other brachioteuthids (about 17 cm mantle length). No common name that I can find. There is a large luminescent sctructure (possibly an augmented photophore) around the eye. They have some really cool looking clubs, lots of suckers. The outer skin has a net like structure.

(not many images of these ones, sorry)
