European squid (Loligo vulgaris)

This ten-armed squid can grow to a length of 75 cm. It is similar to Loligo forbesi, which is not so common in Europe. The two species can be distinguished by the size of the suckers of the middle region of the tentacle club. On Loligo vulgaris they are three to four times the size of the adjacent suckers, while only twice the size on Loligo forbesi. The fins covers approximately two thirds of the body length while the fins of Loligo forbesi cover three fourths. Another similar species is Alloteuthis subulata. The latter is smaller (20 cm) and the slender body end in a pointed "tail".
