Some Additional New Zealand Cephalopods from Cook Strait
Since the writer recorded what was known of the New Zealand cephalopood fauna (Dell, 1952), a good deal of additional material has come to hand. The most spectacular additions to the fauna have resulted from the investigations carried out by the Zoology Department, Victoria University of Wellington. Some of these are recorded in the present paper. Other forms are represented by incomplete or juvenile specimens and consideration of these will be withheld until better specimens are available. The species of Octopus and Robsonella also require revision, and it is hoped to deal with these forms later. The specimens mentioned, unless otherwise stated, are all preserved in the collections of the Dominion Museum.
