TRACKING THE INDOPACIFIC PELAGIC OCTOPUS TREMOCTOPUS GRACILIS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN Orsi Relini L. , Belluscio A, Ardizzone G. D 2015 (pdf)

Abstract Underwater photographs of a pelagic octopus of the genus Tremoctopusin the Tyrrhenian Sea allowed to identify the Indopacific species T. gracilis. Both T. gracilisand T. violaceushave been tracked in the old and recent Mediterranean literature, and the hypothesis of the arrival of T. gracilissince at least the Thirties in the Mediterranean is proposed.
