I've been hunting all over for a dwarf octopus and found vulgaris, wonderpus, and blue ring, along with the usual 'octopus sp.', which cud frankly be anything.
I've ordered one of the randoms, but I know it's unlikely to be a dwarf. Has anyone else got any other ideas?
I'm in the midlands but would be perfectly happy if anyone knew somewhere that delivers.

Do you have any idea of a website for them? I can't find anything online. I'm in Birmingham so closer the better, but I could be persuaded to go to Stoke for a Mercatoris, Joubini or similar if it's ID'd.

It is highly unlikely that you will get a Caribbean octopus in England. More likely you would find an Indo-Pacific species such as O. bocki.
