Atlantic longarm octopus (Macrotritopus defilippi)

This tricky octopus for many years in the minds of scientists as two separate species: Octopus defilippi and Macrotritopus equivocus. The former was an adult octopus that roamed shallow sandy habitats, eating crabs and burying itself in the sediment. The latter was a transparent octopus paralarva that drifted in the plankton, two of its eight arms far longer than the rest.
