The Dwarf Cuttlefish (Sepia bandensis) is a small cephalopod species and can be seen at several dive sites around Romblon Island. They are usually active during night time and like to stay near sea cucumbers or crinoids. They reach a length of about 7 cm. The species was named after the first collected sample form Banda Neira in Indonesia. Like the flamboyant cuttlefish they can “walk on their arms” through the reef.
