Deep Rising

Revealing mistake: When one of the bad guys is being dragged around by the monsters and thrown against pipes and walls and such, in wide shots you can see there is no monster really pulling him, and from the stiffness and position of his body, he is likely on some sort of device to swing him around.

Revealing mistake: Occasionally, when the characters are being eaten by the sea-monsters, you can see pieces of the computer-generated beasts going "through" the victim.

Revealing mistake: When Treat Williams and Famke Janssen are escaping on the jet ski look closely. You can see it's a male stunt double for Famke due to the nose size.

Continuity mistake: When Vivo finds Pantucci snooping around the cargo, he throws him to the middle of the mercenaries, and they all get around him, including T. Ray who smiles at him; when T. Ray smiles at Joey he is standing up, but when he gives the first kick he is sitting down.

Trivia: Footage of the party scene from the ship has since been re-used as stock footage in a number of low-budget films. Director Stephen Sommers has stated that he's not sure exactly how that works legally, but that he suspects the footage was licensed out by the studio in order to help recoup the budget, as "Deep Rising" didn't do well on initial release.

Question: There is a scene where Canton says he believes the creatures were a strange offshoot of the ARCHAEA OTTOIA family. He then describes how big they get based on how deep down they are as well as what they do to their victims. Question is does the Archaea Ottoia really exist? If so is anything Canton said about it true? I tried looking for this creature in the search engine but with no luck.
