Original descriptions and literature references of Sepiola aurantiaca and S. pfefferi are compared with 156 NE Atlantic specimens from museum collections and recent collecting from the International Bottom Trawl Survey (IBTS) and the Beam Trawl Survey (BTS). It appears that Sepiola pfefferi Grimpe, 1921, is not a synonym of S. aurantiaca Jatta, 1896.
