    Has anyone actually counted the chromosomes of cephalopods or worked on their gene maps?

    I think Martindale's lab has done some of that:

    http://www.kewalo.hawaii.edu/labs/martindale/

    for example:

    Lee PN, Callaerts P, de Couet HG, Martindale MQ (2003) Cephalopod Hox genes and the origin of morphological novelties. Nature 424:1061-1065.
