Neorossia N.G. Pro Rossia (Allorossia) Caroli Joubin, 1902, with Remarks on the Generic Status of Semirossia Steenstrup, 1887 (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
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.
