The other side.
Taxonomic revision of “Onychoteuthis” conocauda Quenstedt, 1849 (Cephalopoda: Coleoidea)

Looks like the phragmocone doubles back forming a "hook" on the ?Internal shell. This is the first I've noticed any nacreous structure on an internal shell... where have I been?
Ohh, I hadn't thought about that. Pearls are formed internally, right?
Ohh, I didn't think of that. This shell was just like a big pearl. :)
I wonder which side was up???
Maybe it was external... I'm thinking that the ventral side is the one with the curved part of the shell. Some cuttlebones curve a little like that.
