Thanks for this photo. There are very few photos of the living animal, so this is of great interest. In an earlier message on Charcotia granulosa [#19508] I discuss how the tentacular shape of the rhinophores [head tentacles] in the accompanying photo is rather different from Heike Wagele's description of 'flap-like' tentacles in her description of preserved animals. Your photo explains the difference as it shows a flap-like base and a short tentacles which I presume can greatly extend when the animal is not disturbed.
This is an interesting new bit of information
