As a taxonomist-in-training, all I can tell you is that it's not a Mastigo. As a barcoder, I'd say to send me a chunk of tissue and I'll tell you in September when I'm back in the lab :)

Well, given that it's transparent-ish, I'm going to puff up my chest and insist its a Cranchiid.
Given the fin shape, I would say its Leachia

(ok, it's a bad picture, but just beleive me on this one... it looks similar).
Any chance there's a close up of the tentacles?
