cephalopods

01 June 2010 - 06:04 AM

folks,

I haven't been able to track these cephalopods down, any help would be appreciated. If you can point out some diagnostic features to help me in the future then that would be a bonus!

Baby cuttlefish (?) about an inch or two long at Lembeh Strait, Indonesia (do the two dark lines indicate that this is a Broadclub Cuttlefish, Sepia latimanus?):

Thanks in advance,

mixed bag (Belize & Indo-Pacific)

folks,

Got a mixed bag of critters I haven't been able to track down. Any help, even family name, would be appreciated.

(1) I looked through Debelius a couple of times but amazingly I couldn't place this lobster from Belize, I know it must be in there:

(2) Moray from Phuket, not much to go on unfortunately. If you can name the shrimp then that would be a huge bonus too!

(3) I always find giant clams hard to pin down to species, this one is from the Perhentian Islands off Malaysia:

(4) Cuttlefish, Anilao, Philippines:

(5) Squid, Lembeh Strait, Indonesia:

(6) Unfortunate four-armed sea star, Phuket:

If it would help to have any of these in a larger size then let me know and I'll upload it.

TIA,

Richard.
