Description from Muctopus:
Amphioctopus marginatus (Taki, 1964) PDF from eolSpeciesLifedesks.org
Crissy - are there any particular photos of the A. marginatus I have that would be helpful? If so I can snap them and add them to this thread.
I have also noticed that the third right arm seems shorter and thicker in males.
Sure- always helpful! Also- I have a ton from the wild, just need to post...Ahh the 24 hr day...
D - do you want video in this thread?
Sure, basically I am trying to push this unused area as an ID and behavioral section where the topic of each thread is the species. I am thinking about trying to keep each octo consolidated as one topic so that if you see the species your are interest in for information, official papers, videos, descriptions are all found together.
EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT OF AMPHIOCTOPUS MARGINATUS (TAKI) (MOLLUSCA: OCTOPODIDAE) IN CAPTIVITY
Sreeja, Anushma, K. and Biju Kumar 2013 (full pdf)
(dwhatley) Not much info in the paper but id does give a very simple description of what can be observed during development within the egg. The hatchlings were fed brine shrimp and died rapidly. It should be noted that the female died before the hatchlings emerged so water quality may have played a roll in the extremely short pelagic lifespan.
