On the Presence of Light Organs in Semirossia Steenstrup, 1887 (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
The presence of light organs in the species Rossia tenera (Verrill), R. equalis Voss, and R. patagonica Smith (R. tenera subsp. patagonica [Smith]), which together form the subgenus Semirossia Steenstrup, is stated in the present study. The organs are briefly described; their function as light organs is mainly deduced from the anatomical similarity to those of other sepiolids, as observations on living animals are still lacking.
