Dumbo Octopus and friends...

"A world of twinkling lights, silvery eels, throbbing jellyfish, living strings as lovely as the finest lace and lankey monsters with needlelike teeth." - William Beebe describing the creatures of the abyss on Monterey Bay's seafloor in 1934.

(L to R: Fanfin Seadevil, Deep-sea Siphonophore, and Dumbo Octopus from yesterday's NYTimes article)
