This one seems to have the

This one seems to have the single rows of suckers typical of Curled Octopus as opposed to the double rows of Octopus vulgaris (common octopus). It was found dead on a beach in the shape seen here.

Tag(s) please

Nice pic
Please add the Tag ProjectM1 Cathal (for the Marines Project).
And I believe you should change the Habitat tag to Marine as it genuinely is a marine creature.

Hi Derek, Will do. I think I

Hi Derek,

Will do. I think I was applying the habitat category to where I found or observed the critters in question. This was washed up on the shore so I was choosing coastal for the location.

Understanding

As I understand, we are asked to place in the Habitat found in. So, a whale washed inland to someone's garden (it might happen) would be Gardens and Parks! And a Butterfly migrating, they do, would be Marine - nice!
Youi can of course Tag them Marine - see www.ispotnature.org/taxonomy/term/337 but I might be the only one!
Never mind. I don't search the site for Coastal but stay in touch with Marines via this link www.ispot.org.uk/taxonomy/term/376.
Goodness it's nice to have you back. I'll send you a plain mail soon.

There are probably more I could change. Thanks Derek, looking forward to your email.
