Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Minimum depth from Ref. 110525. Circumglobal in tropical and subtropical open oceanic waters; known from 43°N to 35°S, generally prescribed by the north and south subtropical convergences. Paralarvae and juveniles are epipelagic to upper mesopelagic, upper 400 meters, while adults descend to mesopelagic and bathypelagic zones, perhaps up to 2,000 meters deep (Ref. 97142). Members of the class Cephalopoda are gonochoric. Male and female adults usually die shortly after spawning and brooding, respectively. Mating behavior: Males perform various displays to attract potential females for copulation. During copulation, male grasp the female and inserts the hectocotylus into the female's mantle cavity where fertilization usually occurs. Life cycle: Embryos hatch into planktonic stage and live for some time before they grow larger and take up a benthic existence as adults (Ref. 833).
