September 14th, 1970 some nearly undamaged shells and fragments of Sepia bertheloti d’Orbigny were found on the beach between Zandvoort and IJmuiden. Specimens of newly settled barnacles are present on the ventral surface of these shells. This Sepia is found living from about 28°N to 14°S. Probably it has to go beyond 40°N to be under the influence of currents to the N. of the Gulf Stream. Then it must either have gone through the English Channel and the Strait of Dover, or along the west of Ireland and Scotland and turned back into the North Sea before the shells were thrown upon the Dutch coast. The possibility of the specimens having been eaten and the remains thrown overboard can be ruled out.
