First description of hatchlings and eggs of Octopus oliveri (Berry, 1914)
Heather A. Ylitalo, Les Watling, Robert J. Toonen 2013 (subscription)

Abstract
Chromatophore patterns can be used to identify paralarvae at the species level and are used here to distinguish Octopus oliveri (Berry, 1914) from other Hawaiian cephalopod paralarvae. Eggs, clutches, and hatchlings are described for the first time in O. oliveri. Preservation times are compared to illustrate variation in founder chromatophore patterns even among individuals of the same brood.
