Eggs of O. macropus attached to aquarium wall. The arms and suckers of the female octopus are visible. This species produces very small plantonic paralarve, yet the eggs are quite large for this hatchling life history type. Also it is uncommon for the eggs to be attached individually. Most octopus species with planktonic hatchling lay egg strands with hundreds of eggs interwoven together by their stalks.
