Introduction

O. albatrossi was originally described from four specimens and placed in the genus Stauroteuthis. The enlarged suckers, however, clearly show that it belongs in the genus Opisthoteuthis. Another similar species of Opisthoteuthis (O. californiana) occurs in Japanese waters but has never been closely compared with O. albatrossi because of the latter's incorrect generic placement.
