Brief SummaryRead full entry
Cycloteuthids are mesopelagic squids of moderate size, the largest reaches about 60 cm ML, with a cosmopolitan distribution in tropical and subtropical waters (Nesis, 1982). In Cycloteuthis the mantle and fins are drawn-out into a slender tail. A tail is lacking in Discoteuthis and the large, oval (disc-like) combined fins extend virtually the full length of the mantle. Very little is known about the biology of any species in the family.
