Pterygioteuthis giardi is a species of squid in the family Pyroteuthidae. It is known as the roundear enope squid. Pterygioteuthis hoylei is considered conspecific with P. giardi by some authorities. The specific name honors the French zoologist and marine biologist Alfred Mathieu Giard (1846-1908).[3]
