Moreover, when the range is taken into account instead of only the means, measurements overlap with both expected modes of life Tables II and III.

Robson in his monograph entrroctopus octopods regarded E. The eggs of R. As for many other commercially exploited octopodid species, there are no detailed descriptions of the eggs and hatchlings of Enteroctopus megalocyathus that can be used for the identification of individuals captured in plankton samples.

Both stains show that the secretion of mucous cells consists mainly of neutral and acidic proteoglycans. Several authors, Boucher-Rodoni entreoctopus Boucher-Rodoni and Mangold between others, observed that in some Octopodidae the epithelium of the oesophagus, crop, stomach, caecum and intestine was simple and cylindrical. The hectocotylus of the males in this genus, found on the third right arm, is long and narrow in comparison with enterctopus genera in the family Octopodidaeoften comprising one-fifth the length of the arm.

Wilcoxon paired-sample tests Zar, were performed to compare the number of dorsal and ventral chromatophores and to compare AL with ML.

The differences appeared in the “boules cells” at the cell granules level. The Patagonian giant octopus or southern red octopus, Enteroctopus megalocyathusis limited to the Neotropical region of southern South America. The presence of a skin film enterocto;us the body in E.

WoRMS – World Register of Marine Species – Enteroctopus megalocyathus (Gould, )

It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. The tunica muscularis consists of two layers of muscle fibers: It is thinner in the oesophagus and crop but enough to protect the mucosa of these organs from the food ingested as the crustacean carapace. Six octopuses of the species E. No development of sucker buds was found on the tip of the arms at the time of hatching. Sign In or Create an Account. When we consider the other features of eggs and hatchlings of other octopodid species in relation to their mode of life, it seems that at the outset of post-embryonic development E.

Feeding and growth in captivity of the octopus Enteroctopus megalocyathus Gould, With similar regularity, adhesion to the glass surface of the aquarium was observed.


To avoid thermal shock, we acclimated seawater to experimental conditions for a period of 12 h and changed it every 2 days. Department of Biology, University of Victoria Canadapp. There is no set time until sexual maturation of this species.

Retrieved from ” https: As such, the genus was considered invalid until Hochberg resurrected it in The digestive gland, occupies most of the visceral mass, and has two separated ducts which enter the caecum Figure 1c.

Megalocuathus In octopuses kept without food during two days in the laboratory, the animals presented in the intestine epithelium numerous goblet cells and scarce mucous cells.

Enteroctopus species have distinct longitudinal wrinkles or folds dorsally and laterally on their bodies.

The muscle coat is well developed and consists of two layers of muscles fibers: Eggs were measured with a Vernier caliper and characterized by their EL, egg width EW and chorion stalk length.

They produce benthic hatchlings with a ML of 6.

Generally, hatchling cephalopods are obtained in two ways: The terminal zone of the folds has cells with well developed cilia which decrease in height and disappear in the epithelium between the folds. The aim of the present study is to determine the histological structure of the digestive organs in E. In all the secondary folds in a subterminal position Figure 3a basophilic cylindrical cells are present. When fixed, the transparent mantle of fresh animals became white, hiding the chromatophores over the visceral mass.
