These shells at first were conical but later developed into curved nautiloid shapes seen in modern nautilus species. Station 37r. The current state of octopus taxonomy.

Movement through the water is aided by lateral expansions swimming keels on the outer surface of the third pair of arms. In addition, field studies in tropical seas near Indonesia have recorded tool-using behaviour in the veined octopus Amphioctopus marginatus. On the whole the mandibles are fairly uniform in size.
