|As in the other genera of the family, Abraliopsis has three types of integumental photophores covering the arms, head, funnel and mantle. The right-hand photo shows the ventral surface of the head and funnel. The most complex of the integumental photophores have red color filters. The other two types appear as blue photophores with white cores in the photos and can be separated only by size in these pictures. Large white ocular photophores are also easily seen through the skin. The photo on the left is an enlargement of some of the photophores.||image info||image info|
