Octopus bimaculoides (California two-spot octopus) (PRJNA270931)

About Octopus bimaculoides

The California two-spot octopus (Octopus bimaculoides), despite the first part of its name, has a range throughoput the eastern Pacific and the Indo-Pacific. The second part of its name derives from the false eye spot (ocellus) under each real eye, which is an iridescent blue chain-link circle set in a circle of black. It has several common colors, such as grey with yellow splotches, and uses highly developed crypsis (camouflage).
