JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo1.wmv13990KAppendix S1. Doryteuthis plei spermatophore undergoing the spermatophoric reaction in vitro. Please refer to text for details.
JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo2.wmv9701KAppendix S2. Spermatophoric reaction of a spermatophore of Doryteuthis plei, which was previously subjected to magnesium chloride treatment. Please refer to text for details.
JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo3.tif6227KAppendix S3. Artefact of preparation produced after subjecting the spermatophore of Doryteuthis plei to magnesium chloride treatment. In this case, during the spermatophoric reaction, the cement body was extruded intact, i.e., without the deep structural reconfiguration seen under normal conditions. Please refer to text for details. Abbreviations: cba, aboral region of the cement body; cbe, cement body extremity; cbi, intermediate region of the cement body; cbo, oral region of the cement body; it, inner tunic; sm, sperm mass.
JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo4.wmv14435KAppendixes S4-S6. Doryteuthis plei spermatophores undergoing the spermatophoric reaction in vitro with a substrate (i.e., piece of the male's donor tentacle) for attachment. Please refer to text for details.
JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo5.wmv12412KAppendixes S4-S6. Doryteuthis plei spermatophores undergoing the spermatophoric reaction in vitro with a substrate (i.e., piece of the male's donor tentacle) for attachment. Please refer to text for details.
JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo6.wmv13310KAppendixes S4-S6. Doryteuthis plei spermatophores undergoing the spermatophoric reaction in vitro with a substrate (i.e., piece of the male's donor tentacle) for attachment. Please refer to text for details.
JMOR_11020_sm_SuppInfo7.tif6096KAppendix S7. Supplemental figures showing the scarified condition of the spermatangia depositions sites of Doryteuthis plei. A: Cross-section through the female buccal membrane at a region near an implanted spermatangium, showing a ruptured, ripped off cuticle layer (cul) bearing several stellate particles (arrowheads) attached at its inner side. Given their size these are probably inner membrane's stellate particles. B: Cross-section through the female genital opening lip at a region near implanted spermatangia, showing the ruptured epithelium (ept), which seems to have been torn or ripped off. C: Detail view of a cross-section through a genital opening lip near implanted spermatangia, showing the ruptured epithelium (ept), and the scarified connective tissue (cnt) with some cement material (cs) and bunches of seemingly minute stellate particles (arrowheads) adhered on its surface. Given their size these are possibly spiral filament's stellate particles. D: Cross-section through a spermatangium implanted on the genital opening lip, showing the ruptured epithelium (ept), and the connective tissue (cnt), some of which appear to have been pulled out by the spermatangium's base. Abbreviations: cnt, connective tissue; cs, cement substances; cu, cuticle of the seminal receptacle; cul, cuticle individual layer (ruptured); ept, epithelium; i, cement body inner layer. it, inner tunic; sm, sperm mass.
