Not a new squid, but a very rarely filmed one. The video was taken late last year and is only now coming to light. Apparently it (the video, not the squid) has been floating around the internet as an email attachment for quite some time.
Two thousand five hundred monometers down, which is pretty deep (though not as deep as it gets), a Shell Oil submersible robot filmed this Magnapinna squid (a.k.a., the “Elbowed Squid.”
In 1998 Vecchoine and University of Hawaii biologist Richard Young became the first to document a Magnapinna, based on juveniles of the Magnapinna pacifica species. M. pacifica was so unusual that the scientists had to create a new classification category to accommodate it: the family Magnapinnidae, which currently boasts four species.
In 2001 the pair released the first scientific report based on adult Magnapinna specimens, as seen via video. The study demonstrated that Magnapinna are common worldwide in the permanently dark zone of the ocean below about 4,000 feet (1,219 meters).
