Hi gang, Over the past couple of months the squid lab here at AUT have finally found the time to process some stuff from the freezers, and have found some very interesting things. I thought I'd re-start the ID game (which we haven't played in ages!) with some of the photos here. I'll post them one at a time and when someone gets the ID right I'll post a new one. Here's the first, an easyish one--but there are features visible that should make it possible to narrow down to one of several species ;)

A "feature" of our on-going up grade is a change in the way inserts are handled. I need to re-review the post I made on inserts but if you get the little box after you upload, you will need to position your cursor where you want the pictures and click the insert image (you will see insert insert image remove all in an unclear line. The insert image is one click and will produce the desired in-line results)

Nudge? Would have thought Aaron might like to poke these with a virtual stick as he wasn't around in person... :)

Eeeeexcellent. Yes, #1 is Histioteuthis macrohista (similar enough to H. bonnellii that telling them apart from this photo is probably impossible), and #2 is Onychoteuthis sp. Nice work--I'll keep you on. ;) Here's the next one!

Good guess, but no! Clues are in the tentacle clubs (if you can see them). I will add: Photophores on ventral surface of the eyes only, and no hooks. :)

Oh man.... I looked at the clubs... and I think we *learned* about these at TONMOCON V too... :oops: :confused2: ...and I can't remember who taught it or what they taught! :bonk:

Oh wow... I would not have guessed that. Thanks for easing our pain! ...and instantly injecting new pain. :eek:

Cruisin' the seaway too close to town
He shoulda looked up and he shoulda looked down
He didn't see the trawl net coming his way
The squid got squashed and there's the devil to pay

You got yer
Dead squid in the middle of the frig
Dead squid in the middle of the frig
You got yer dead squid in the middle of the frig
Stinkin' to high Heaven

Take a whiff on me, that ain't no rose
Open the door and hold yer nose
You don't have to look and you don't have to see
'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory

You got yer
Dead squid in the middle of the frig
Dead squid in the middle of the frig
You got yer dead squid in the middle of the frig
Stinkin' to high Heaven

For those who missed this popular song in the early 1970's, here are the original lyrics.
