Abstract
Biological data are presented on two specimens of Taningia danae, all adult female caught by a trawler in Galician waters (north-west Spain) and a juv enile caught in a deep-water research trawl in Scottish waters (UK). The sp ecies has not previously been recorded in either area. although its presenc e has been inferred from beaks found in sperm whale stomach contents.
