Notes

Octopod with large paired fins emerging from lateral mantle, secondary web between the arms and primary web, and two rows of long cirri lateral to single row of arm suckers. Head about the same width as mantle. Mantle notably elongate, vague translucence. Distal arms often coiled aborally, exposing the secondary web.
