Early life stages of cephalopods are somewhat complex due to the life history strategy or species specificity of generalized ontogenetic patterns and processes. This work aimed to determine the time length of embryonic development at different temperatures, and if the egg size is a determinant of hatchling size in Sepiola atlantica d′Orbigny, 1839–1842. Successful hatching occurred in 98.5–100% of the eggs for each female. As seen in other coleoid cephalopods, temperature determines the amount… Expand

Figures from this paper

Effect of Cadmium on the Embryonic Development and Hatching Rhythm of Big Fin Squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana, Lesson (1830) from Palk Strait,East Coast of India
TLDR
The present concentration exhibited toxic effects to the eggs and paralarvae of S. lessoniana and Cd level as high as it was used in this study could give good information on dangerous Cd levels on squid. Expand
Reproduction of the Atlantic bobtail squid Sepiola atlantica (Cephalopoda: Sepiolidae) in northwest Spain
TLDR
Females of S. atlantica have group-synchronous ovary maturation, with a positive correlation between female mantle length and ripe oocyte mass, suggesting a terminal investment strategy. Expand
The early life history of two sympatric New Zealand octopuses: eggs and paralarvae of Octopus huttoni and Pinnoctopus cordiformis
TLDR
The morphological traits described in hatchlings from the laboratory allowed comparisons with field-collected paralarvae, suggesting that such characters were reliable species-specific patterns to enable a consistent differentiation between the early life stages of these two sympatric species, even in the absence of the brooding female. Expand
Cephalopod embryonic shells as a tool to reconstruct reproductive strategies in extinct taxa
An exhaustive study of existing data on the relationship between egg size and maximum size of embryonic shells in 42 species of extant cephalopods demonstrated that these values are approximatelyExpand
Transitions during cephalopod life history: the role of habitat, environment, functional morphology and behaviour.
TLDR
It is suggested that more accurate evaluation of the sensitivity of cephalopod populations to environmental variation could be achieved by taking into account the ontogeny of the organisms. Expand
Mating behaviour and general spawning patterns of the southern dumpling squid Euprymna tasmanica (Sepiolidae): a laboratory study
TLDR
It is found that male E. tasmanica increase the number of ‘pumps’ (mantle contractions) when mating with females that had recently mated, showing that males are able to determine the recent mating history of females. Expand
On the spermatophore implantation in bobtail squid Rossia macrosoma (Cephalopoda: Mollusca)
In this study, mated female specimens of Rossia macrosoma from the Aegean Sea were examined. During mating, the male places spermatangia on the head of the female (typically around the eyes), and onExpand
Life strategies of cephalopod paralarvae in a coastal upwelling system (NW Iberian Peninsula): insights from zooplankton community and spatio‐temporal analyses
The early life stages of cephalopods - octopods, squids, sepiolids and ommastrephids -, are uncommon in zooplankton samples and little is known about their life strategies. Accordingly, cephalopodExpand
Seasonal abundance of the Atlantic bobtail squid Sepiola atlantica in Galician waters (NE Atlantic)
TLDR
Abundance showed a seasonal pattern with the lowest values in summer, and populations were formed by specimens of different size during the two sampling years, as well in both depth zones. Expand
Multiple paternity but no evidence of biased sperm use in female dumpling squid Euprymna tasmanica
TLDR
Overall, the results suggest strong potential for post-copulatory sexual selection in this species, due to the presence of sperm from multiple males in the female sperm storage organ competing for fertilisation of the female’s eggs. Expand

Laboratory Culture, Growth, and the Life Cycle of the Little Cuttlefish Sepiola atlantica (Cephalopoda: Sepiolidae)
TLDR
Data indicate that S. atlantica has a similar life cycle to other scpioids and that laboratory-reared juveniles matured and successfully mated, but the females did not lay any eggs. Expand
Spawning strategy in Atlantic bobtail squid Sepiola atlantica (Cephalopoda: Sepiolidae)
TLDR
The data suggest that S. atlantica is an intermittent terminal spawner, and that its spawning strategy comprises group-synchronous ovary maturation, multiple egg laying, and deposition of egg clutches in different locations. Expand
LIFE CYCLE OF CULTURED BOBTAIL SQUID, EUPRYMNA HYLLEBERGI NATEEWATHANA, 1997
TLDR
The bobtail squid, Euprymna hyllebergi, was cultured in the laboratory through three generations, and cannibalism was observed in culture tanks and growth was similar among the three generations. Expand
Egg size, fecundity, and spawning in females of the genus Illex (Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae)
TLDR
The squids genus Illex is one of typical r-strategists among the cephalopods and ripe egg production decreases over time with only a 50% replacement of the initial stock of vitelline oocytes and a decreasing volume of eggs at each release. Expand
Biology of the planktonic stages of benthic octopuses
TLDR
Most of the understanding of octopus paralarvae comes from studies of just two species (Octopus vulgaris and Enteroctopus dofleini) and knowledge of the vast majority of benthic octopus species with planktonic stages is considered rudimentary or non-existent. Expand
Are bigger calamary Sepioteuthis australis hatchlings more likely to survive? A study based on statolith dimensions
TLDR
There is an element of size-mediated mortality operating on populations of S. australis, suggesting that bigger hatchlings are more likely to survive to adulthood than smaller hatchlings. Expand
A LOWER LIMIT TO ADULT SIZE IN COLEOID CEPHALOPODS: ELEMENTS OF A DISCUSSION
The smallest living cephalopods are coleoids weighing less than 1 gram when adult (the pygmy squid Idiosepius spp., several pygmy species of the genus Octopus), and there are slightly larger speciesExpand
Mating behavior of the Atlantic bobtail squid sepiola atlantica (Cephalopoda: sepiolidae)
TLDR
The mating behavioral pattern of the bobtail squid (Sepiola atlantica) was observed and described for the first time in laboratory conditions and a comparison of the mating pattern of this species with other members of the family Sepi- olidae is made. Expand
