 ID this low clarinet

I am listening to a charming CD by Cuarteto Caramuxo, a Galician group featuring accordion, percussion and 4 assorted clarinets. I'm hearing two low horns, which are described as bass clarinet and contrabass clarinet. The band photo depicts a clarinet shape which is unfamiliar to me. Can someone identify it?

And the one on the right is the bottom half of a Selmer Bb contrabass

Aha, that bottom half fooled me.

The person on the right has the upper half of a contrabass in his right hand, the lower half in his left.
