Abstract/Summary

A new species of cirrate octopod, Opisthoteuthis borealis sp. nov. is described from specimens caught at depths of 957–1321 m off the coast of Greenland. Opisthoteuthis borealis sp. nov. is the most northerly of the Atlantic species of the genus and can be distinguished from the other species by the form of the digestive gland and the arrangement of enlarged suckers on the arms of mature males.
