Figure. Arrangement of photophores on head and arms of H. berryi. Dorsal, lateral and ventral views combined in the illustration. The line on either side of the head represents the dorsal midline.
- Basal Arm IV Row with 4 photophores. Medial photophore separated by 2 photophores from anterior photophore of Midline Series.
- Midline Series with 2 photophores.
- Right Eyelid Series with 17 photophores .
- Left Eyelid Series with 6 photophores.
- 2° Right Eyelid Series with 8 photophores.
- 2° Left Eyelid Series with 7 photophores.
- Ventral Matrix with 48 photophores; 11 longitudinal (blue) series; attachment to 2° Eyelid Series at 2° eyelid photophores no. 2 on either side.
- Ventral Matrix photophores tend to align in transverse rows.
- Right basal series with 2 photophores.
- Left basal series with two very small photophores.
- Basal row smooth alignment with 7 photophores .
- Right Accessory Series with 2 photophores (see below).
- Left Accessory Series with 3 photophores (see below).
Simple photophores (round, black dots):
- Arrangement as illustrated.
- Large, simple photophores on dorsal surface of head.
- Small, simple photophores not easy to recognize and may be variable.
Photographs showing arrangement of photophores can be found here.
- Compound photophores (Type 2b):
- Mantle Photophores
- Compound photophores of uniform size in anterior half of ventral mantle.
- Arm Photophores
- Arms IV without gap between proximal arm photophores and arm tip photophores (photograph above).
- Arms IV with photophores in four photophore series at base (photograph above).
- Arms III with two major longitudinal photophore series at bases (photograph below); one minor photophore series present (see drawing at top of page).
- Arms II with two major longitudinal photophore series at bases (photograph below); one minor photophore series seems to blend with dorsal major series (see drawing at top of page).
- Arms I with one major longitudinal photophore series at bases; one minor photophore series present (see drawing at top of page).

Figure. Oral view of tentacular clubs of H. berryi. Left - holotype. Right - 49 mm ML, 49 mm ML, 31°N, 155°W. Photographs by R. Young.
Except for the information on photophores of the head and the photographs, the above data comes from Voss (1969)
