Possibly some relation to the Octopus?

They sure do seem to pick up a lot of information off an imprint.

It's the same type of animal as a jellyfish, just with eight arms. Interesting that they found fossils of it, usually invertebrates comparable to this are next to impossible to find fossil evidence of since they lack an endo or exoskeleton to fossilize.
