Forty four specimens (22.5-34.2 cm ML) of Heterololigo bleekeri were collected around Dokdo, East Sea on March 1, 2012. It was identified as H. bleekeri based on the following combination of morphological character: mantle very elongate; fin large, thick, length two-thirds of mantle length; arms very short and small in relation to body size, are formula III>II>IV>I.
