Illex illecebrosus and Ommatostrephes todarus are northern forms, of great importance on the banks of New- foundland, and along the coasts of Iceland and Norway, as Gonatus fabricii (see Fig. 98, p. 113) is the squid of the " bottle-nose grounds" in the Norwegian Sea. Todaropsis eblance and Ommatostrephes sagittatus extend nearly as far north as the southern borders of the Norwegian Sea.. Fig. 438. Doratopsis exophthalmica, Chun (f). (From Chun.) Mastigoteuthis, Grimalditeuthis, and Chiroteuthis are large squids, some of which were captured by the Prince of Monaco around the Azores, Madeira, and Canaries. Grimalditeuthis richardi described by Joubin, proves to be identical with G. bonplandi (see Fig. 440) taken by the " Michael Sars." A new species is described by Chun under the name of Mastigoteuthis hjorti. We succeeded in catching adults as well as larvae of the Ommatostrephidae and Gonatidae ; Chun has described the interesting larva of Ommatostrephes (see Fig. 441), taken in the southern.
