The type locality is the Western Mediterranean. This species has been reported from the western Mediterranean, and tropical and subtropical waters of the eastern Atlantic and off Nova Scotia in the western North Atlantic (Vecchione and Pohle, 2002). The records outside the Mediterranean are very sparse. This species has also been reported from the Gulf of Mexico (Voss, 1956) and the southwestern Pacific (Rancurel, 1970), but these identifications are questionable because in both cases the specimens lacked numerous occipital folds. These squids may be young Onykia (Kubodera, et al., 1998, their Moroteuthis).
