Aegina group

When working in Thailand years ago, I remember seeing a species similar to this. Crissy tells me that it is in the O. aegina group and may well be O. aegina.

Thanks - Looks like Octopus aeginus

I've found a pic for O. aegina that looks just like it. Common name is the Marbled or Sandbird octopus. Appears to be a shell-dweller.

Still no info about it though, like maximum size, habitat, etc.

Books on these things in English are hard to come by in Thailand, if anyone knows about them or has links to any articles, let me know.

Thanks
