Two specimens of L. pealeii. Sex and maturity stage is unknown. The ruler is calibrated in cm, so these animals would mantle lengths of near 10cm. Note that the gladii or pens have been removed and lay alongside the specimens. Gladii are a useful tool in differentiating the two very similar species, L. pealeii and L. plei.
Maturity: Adult; Lab or Wild: Lab; Origin: S. gulf of mexico, campeche, mexico
