Distribution: Cape Hatteras (36°N) to northern Argentina (35°S) usually associated with Brazilian warm current. Also including Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, Bermuda and Bahamian and Caribbean islands ( Jereb & Roper, 2010).

Description

Mantle: Cylindrical; muscular (~ 91 mm; Table 1); usually long and slender ( Fig. 1AView Figure 1), ~ 4-times longer than wide.

Head: Eye diameter approximately 13% of mantle length ( Table 2). Width similar to length values.

Chromatophores: Widely distributed, with higher densities on dorsal region including head (around eyes), dorsal midline of mantle (highly concentrated beginning of fins), fins and arms/tentacles. Mature males presenting striped pattern along ventral surface of mantle ( Fig. 1AView Figure 1).

Fins: Rhomboid, slightly ovate comprising ~ 48% ML ( Table 2), connected posteriorly to posterior end of mantle ( Fig. 1AView Figure 1).

Arms: Muscular, broad at base and gradually tapering into thin tips; formula III>IV>II>I (~ lengths: 33 mm, 30 mm, 29 mm, 23 mm);biserial suckers.Hectocotylized portion ~ 39% of left ventral arm length reaching arm’s tip ( Table 2), only left row of suckers modified into small peduncles. Bar between row of peduncles and row of suckers connecting them in ladder pattern ( Fig. 1EView Figure 1).

Tentacle: Club long and thin, ~ 28% ML ( Table 2), carpus, manus and dactylus easily defined; 4 rows of suckers diagonally distributed along club, more visible at manus and dactylus regions; 2 central rows at manus region much bigger than other suckers. Each sucker with small chitin ring of teeth inside. Longitudinal muscle around sucker visible ( Figs. 1B, 1DView Figure 1).

Circulatory system: Normal Loliginidae  form ( Fig. 6AView Figure 6). One central systemic croissant-shaped heart; two small- er peripheral branchial round hearts associated to gills. Two aortae: (i) anterior aorta delivering blood to head, arms and tentacles; (ii) posterior aortic trunk, divided in: (a) visceral aorta, sending blood to posterior part of mantle and visceral organs; (b) mantle aorta, distributing blood to anterior region of mantle. Blood return to heart (i) from posterior vena cava and (ii) from lateral nephridial vessel, both ending in a branchial heart. Branchial artery leaving branchial heart, and ending in gills complex; after this, returning to heart through branchial vein ( Fig. 3AView Figure 3).

Digestive system ( Figs. 5View Figure 5, 6View Figure 6): Pigmented tip of upper beak short and robust ( Fig. 1CView Figure 1). Radula usual for the family; rachidian and first lateral teeth bearing primary large projection and secondary smaller one(s) ( Fig. 4AView Figure 4). Usual digestive system for Loliginidae  : buccal bulb occupying ~ half of inner head volume. Esophagus narrow, running straight posteriorly along ~ ⅕ of mantle length. Stomach spherical, wall weakly muscular, occupying ~ 20% of visceral volume, located in middle level of visceral sac; posterior caecum wide, extending up to posterior mantle space. Intestine narrow, originating in YY region of stomach, performing simple loop in anterior region of visceral sac. Anus with two papillae, located in middle level of pallial cavity, preceded by short flexible stalk. Digestive gland wide and located between four retractile muscles of head and funnel. Esophagus passing through digestive gland ventro-dorsally.

Male genital system: Normal genital system for Loliginidae  , including characters of penis, Needham sac, spermatophoric gland and a single testicle ( Figs. 6A, 6BView Figure 6). Hectocotylus described above.

Female genital system: Normal genital system for Loliginidae  , including characters of vagina, oviduct,oviducal gland, ovary, a pair of nidamental glands and pair of accessory nidamental glands ( Fig. 5View Figure 5). Nidamental glands more uniform, with no slender tip ( Fig. 5BView Figure 5).

Central nervous system ( Fig. 3BView Figure 3): Central mass slightly divided into anterior and posterior regions. Giant fibers running from posterior end, along dorsal portion of mantle; stellate ganglion visible beneath gills. One pair of optic lobes mushroom-shaped, flanking central mass on each side. Several nerves running anteriorly towards arms and tentacles, forming ring around buccal bulb ( Fig. 3BView Figure 3: ib).
