    Hi all

    I got an email asking on a beach find of
    Tremoctopus v. violaceus

    Is this correct?


    Dear Dr. Gross,

    This specimen washed up in Delray Beach, Florida 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if you would be able to identify it for me. A friend has put together a website of my photos and of videos taken in the area.

    Please contact me with any questions.

    Best Regards,

    Jacey

    The second picture does look a lot like Tremoctopus to me. Steve or one of the other taxonomist types can probably ID it for certain.
