Lolliguncula Tydeus, a New Species of Squid (Cephalopoda; Myopsida) from the Pacific Coast of Central America
Abstract:A new species of myopsid squid, Lolliguncula tydeus, is described from the Eastern Pacific. It is compared to two other myopsids, Lolliguncula brevis and Loliolopsis diomedeae. The new species is shown to be intermediate between Lolliguncula and Loliolopsis and it is suggested that these two genera are closely related. Some of the specimens were collected in brackish water which indicates that this, along with Lolliguncula brevis, is the second known euryhaline cephalopod.
