Introduction

Three specimens belonging to two distinct species, from the stomach of the fish Alepisaurus ferox, superficially look like sepiolids but lack several of the most basic features of that family and of the Sepioidea. We place these in a new subfamily but are uncertain how they fit into the phylogeny of the Sepiolidae or Sepiolida. A brief discussion of the relationships of the NewSubFamily is found on the Sepiolidae page.

Diagnosis

Sepiolid-like cephalopods:

  • without lateral funnel adductor muscles.
  • without secondary eyelids.
