the flesh looks pretty substantial and there is also the circular indent in it in the second picture that looks kind of like the siphon used for jet propulsion on an octopus or squid, so i'm guessing some kind of cephalopod (reply...)

139 days ago Tclenche made the following comment on the observation of Clione limacina posted on April 19, 2021:
it is the largest number of this species that I have ever seen. Usually only see one or two per year. There were hundreds along the shoreline between Petley and Britannia. I cannot tell how many more were in locations beyond those places.
