Range Description

According to Reid and Jereb (2005), the Mimka Bobtail Squid (Euprymna morsei) ranges from southern Japan southwards along the coast of Korea and China to Malaysia and Indonesia (Java), taking in the East and South China Seas, the Yellow Sea, Gulf of Thailand and the Philippines (Reid and Jereb 2005). However, Norman and Lu (1997) believe this to be a temperate species restricted to cooler waters around Japan. Further taxonomic work on the genus is required to be enable accurate delineation of the species and their geographic boundaries.
