This small squid can mostly be seen during night dives. They are usually hovering over the sand or sit on top or hidden inside the substrate. Their metallic appearance makes them an interesting objective for underwater macro photography. Males can reach a size of up to 3 cm. Female bobtail squid can grow up to 5 cm.
