Abstract


The squid Lolliguncula (Lolliguncula) argus is a rare species, endemic to the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean, by their morphological characteristics could be easily confused with other species of the family Lolliguinidae. The distribution and meristic measures remains unclear in spite of recent work in the north part of the distribution. Eleven males and 28 females collected in artisanal fisheries and in the shrimp fishery of the Gulf of Tehuantepec were examined. These records expand species geographic distribution in the southern Mexican Pacific and morphometric and biological data are presented.
