Thanks Kevin...an interesting read. Lots of speculation though...had not realized that Nautilus were so researched in regards to reproduction...seems odd in light of how "in the dark" we are with so many cephalopod species reproduction events...

From the introduction in the paper referenced above:

The first embryos of N. belauensis were obtained in 1985 at the Waikiki Aquarium (Hawaii) (Carlson 1985; Arnold and Carlson 1986). Hatching of this species was attained in 1988 at the Kagoshima Aquarium (Japan) (Okutani 1990), and in 1990 at the Waikiki Aquarium (Carlson 1991; Carlson et al. 1992). Hatching of N. macromphalus was also observed in 1993 at the Toba Aquarium (Japan) (Uchiyama and Tanabe 1999).

There may have been some since. :?:

They've been hatched in indonesia before I think in captivity but I dont hink that any have been brought on successfully. It's all in the Mark Norman book, Cephalopods, a world guide somewhere!
