Thanks for posting this, Tony!

Steve,

In cnidarians, the statoliths are located in the rhopalia and serve a gravitropic function. Is that the case observed in cephalopods?

Whoa... Deja vu... I think I've asked this before... Sorry if I have.

I'll have to do a wee bit of research to respond to that one John; things free up a bit in 2 days so I'll look at it then (and read about it over a drop of vino this evening).
Cheers
O

And here is yet another article that has been converted from Adobe. This is a great one because the previous file did not load properly. It is now online in its full glory, with all photos and tables rendered as intended!

Thanks Dr. Steve! :oshea:
