    Look in Cephbase, or the Cephalopod Page on the internet one of them should have it.

    I checked past posts and Rudiger had an O. bimaculoides, the one we refer to as a bimac (the O. stands for Octopus). So that most likely is the octopus in the photo.

    The color must be a bit reddish in this pic, too.
