Les Cephalopodes recoltes en Mediterranee par le 'Jean-Charcot'. Campagnes Polymede 1 et 2
Eleven spp of cephalopod were collected with the Isaacs Kidd midwater trawl during the Polymede expeditions on the N.O. 'Jean Charcot' in the western Mediterranean and in the vicinity of Cap Finisterre. The most abundant sp was Histioteuthis reversa. 14 spp were collected with the bottom trawl Marinovitch in the western part of the Alboran Sea. The most abundant mesobenthic sp was Bathypolypus sponsalis. The specimens, very similar to the type specimen from the Atlantic, are very different from the animals captured in the Catalonian Sea.
