The numbers and placement of spermatophores transferred by males to females in the genus Euchaeta are examined in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean. Multiple placement of spermatophores is present in the five diel, vertically migrating species, E. acuta, E. pseudotonsa, E. gracilis, E. norvegica and E. hanseni. Direct placement covering the genital opening is usually, but not always the primary placement site. Males produce two sizes of spermatophores corresponding to the small directly placed… CONTINUE READING
