Brief Summary

Read full entry


P. giardi is a very distinctive species. It is easily recognized by the presence of hooks in both armature series on arms I-III, the distinctive hectocotylus and the lack of suckers on the ventral arms in females. These squids are more silvered than the other species in the genus and have extremely small tentacular clubs. In addition, adult females have relatively longer mantles and smaller head and arms.
