Abdopus aculeatus ethogram

Given the number of questions about A. aculeatus body patterning and behavior, I looked into posting a paper describing its basic natural history and body patterning. Turns out the journal policy seems ok with this. Hope this is useful!

They do specify though that the citation be listed:
Huffard, C.L. (2007) Ethogram of Abdopus aculeatus (d’Orbigny, 1834) (Cephalopoda: Octopodidae): can behavioral characters inform octopodid taxomony and systematics? Journal of Molluscan Studies 73: 185-193
