Habitat and Ecology
Members of the Enoploteuthidae family occur in mid-depths in the ocean and occasionally over the continental shelf (Norman 2003). They undergo diel vertical migrations, rising into the upper water column at night to feed (Norman 2003). Females spawn small eggs (0.9 and 1.5 mm in diameter depending on species, Young et al. 1992) individually into gelatinous strings (Norman 2003).

Justification
There is very little known about Abraliopsis chuni, and this lack of information makes it impossible to make an accurate assessment of its extinction risk. We therefore list this species as Data Deficient. Further research is recommended in order to determine the taxonomy, precise distribution, population dynamics, life history and ecology, and potential threat processes affecting this species.
