Onykia ingens (warty squid)

Synonyms: Moroteuthis ingens; Onychoteuthis ingens

Wikipedia Abstract

Onykia ingens, the greater hooked squid, is a species of squid in the family Onychoteuthidae. It occurs worldwide in subantarctic oceans. Although O. ingens was long attributed to the genus Moroteuthis, several authors have recently agreed that Moroteuthis is a junior synonym of Onykia.
