Systematics and distribution of oceanic cephalopods in the South China Sea, Area III: Western Philippines
Four species of cephalopods were collected in the South China Sea, area III (Western Philippines) during AprilÐMay 1998. An oceanic species, Sthenoteuthis oualaniensis (Lesson, 1830) was caught by automatic squid jigging on board M.V SEAFDEC and three additional cephalopod species, Sepioteuthis lessoniana Lesson, 1830, Thysanoteuthis rhombus Troschel, 1857 and Nototodarus hawaiiensis (Berry, 1912) were caught by squid jigging and purse seine of M.V. Maya Maya. S. oualaniensis was the dominant oceanic species in the study area. Descriptions, measurements and distributions of these squids were included.
