Decapod cephalopods such as the squid Loligo vulgaris and the cuttlefish Sepia officinalis also have PSVs, or 'parolfactory vesicles'; these are not located on the stellate ganglia, but lie underneath the cranial cartilage casing on and below the optic tract (Young, 1936; Perrelet and Mauro, 1972).
When two extraocular photoreceptor cells from the same cluster in a parolfactory vesicle from a squid (Loligo pealei) were impaled simultaneously, partial electrical coupling was recorded in 1 out of 4 pairs of cells (Sperling et al., 1973).
However, the functional role of the epistellar body and parolfactory vesicles in octopus and squid still remains enigmatic.
