Abstract

We describe Promachoteuthis sloani, a new species of oegopsid squid in the family Promachoteuthidae. The new species is based on two specimens with the following characters that are unique within the family: each tentacle with two series of complex papillae in the proximal 80%, and each tentacle with pigmented ridges dorsolateral to the papillae that break into papillae distally.
