Pygmy Squid in a dish!

By: Jen Cork, Category: Science, Date: 12 Oct 2011

Earlier in the year, Dr Mandy Reid was on a field trip at Sussex Inlet in NSW and collected a new species of Pygmy squid.

The field trip was one of the occasional expeditions our Malacology Section take part in for research and collection purposes.

Mandy and the team were fortunate enough to discover the new species as well as witness the uncommon occurrence of mating in a ‘petri dish.’

Interested in a sneak peak in this unusual mating ritual?
