Never heard of Sepia bandensis referred to as the "banded cuttle". Bandensis referrs to the location of the type specimen - the Banda Sea.

Definitely Sepia bandensis.

How big is your set up?

I have been raising some from eggs. They are about 3 months old now. Best saltwater creature I have kept yet.
