A Study of the Morphology and Biology of Octopus Hummelincki Adam, 1936 (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
Abstract:The measurements, counts, and indices of 106 specimens of Octopus hummelincki Adam are recorded and analyzed for systematic importance. The ranges and means of each measurement and its index are presented in tables as well as in graphs for evaluation. All the measurements, counts, and indices of described specimens of this species are included in many of the tables for comparison. Since O. hummelincki resembles O. bimaculatus Verrill from the Pacific Coast of the United States, a discussion of the morphological and biological similarities and differences is given. The present geographical distribution is presented together with the localities of previously known specimens of O. hummelincki described between 1936 and 1953.
