Etymology: Eptatretus: Greek, epta = seven + Greek, tretos, -e, -on = with holes (Ref. 45335);  grouseri: Named for David 'Grouser' McMillan, Chief Engineer in the U.S. Merchant Marine, for his continued encouragement of C.B. McMillan's hagfish studies and for his knowledge and love of ships and the seas (Ref. 31788).

Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Five or six gill pouches and apertures each side, last gill aperture confluent with the pharyngocutaneous duct on the left side. Multicusps 3 in anterior and 2 in posterior rows, 9 unicusps in each anterior and 8 in each posterior row, total cusps 44; slime pore counts: prebranchial 12-13, branchial 4-5, trunk 44-46, tail 14-15, total slime pores 76-77. Ventral finfold vestigial; caudal finfold well developed (Ref. 31788).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturità | Riproduzione | Deposizione | Uova | Fecundity | Larve

Copulatory organ absent. The gonads of hagfishes are situated in the peritoneal cavity. The ovary is found in the anterior portion of the gonad, and the testis is found in the posterior part. The animal becomes female if the cranial part of the gonad develops or male if the caudal part undergoes differentiation. If none develops, then the animal becomes sterile. If both anterior and posterior parts develop, then the animal becomes a functional hermaphrodite. However, hermaphroditism being characterised as functional needs to be validated by more reproduction studies (Ref. 51361 ).
