Euaxoctopus Pillsburyae, New Species, (Mollusca: Cephalopoda) from the Southern Caribbean and Surinam
Abstract:A new species of ocellated octopus, Euaxoctopus pillsburyae, is described from material collected from the R/V John Elliott Pillsbury in the tropical Western Atlantic. It is compared with its nearest relative, Euaxoctopus panamensis, from the Eastern Pacific. The genus Euaxoctopus is emended in order to contain the new species; the genus is the first in the octopodines to contain species in which either the third right or the third left arm is hectocotylized.
