At <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GUID_Partition_Table#Partition_type_GUIDs> and elsewhere: 

* GUID 8c8f8eff-ac95-4770-814a-21994f2dbc8f is associated with

    VeraCrypt data

<https://forums.FreeBSD.org/threads/81899/> shows that this partition type is: 

* recognised by GPT fdisk – sysutils/gdisk

* not recognised by FreeBSD gpart(8). 

VeraCrytpt is ported to FreeBSD – security/veracrypt
