Caption: This species of Grimpoteuthis, or flapjack octopus, is a deep water species. These octopuses are also called ''Dumbo'' owing to the large fins on their mantles and their similarity in appearance to the children's character, Dumbo. Another key character to this group is the webbing between the tentacles. This individual was captured in a trawl between 500 meters depth and the surface, 2007.
