Rossia caroli Joubin is placed in a new genus, Neorossia, characterized by reduction of the ink sac and anal valves to apparently functionless rudiments. This is the first record of a decapodous cephalopod devoid of a functional ink sac. In the present study, the original
generic status of Semirossia Steenstrup is reestablished.
