Histioteuthis bonnelli corpuscula Clarke, 1980

Diagnosis :
ML 80mm. Very similar to the typical H. bonnelli, but differing in having: ⑴ small size, ⑵ less gelatinous body, and ⑶ 2-3 large round photophores present postero-ventral to the left eye. Voss et al. (1998) consider that this is within the variabilities of H. bonelli. Western Indian Ocan.
