Octopus hummelincki Previously known as Octopus fillosus, not sure when it was reclassified.<br />
This was a juvenile of around 3 cm body size.<br />
It has 2 blue rings on the side of its face, not sure if that indicates its venomous which is the case with the Blue-ringed Octopus and Occelated Blue-ringed octopus from the tropical waters.<br />
