Sepia rhoda is a species of cuttlefish native to the Indo-Pacific, specifically from the Arafura Sea (10°24′S 130°23′E / 10.400°S 130.383°E / -10.400; 130.383) to the North West Shelf (20°47′S 114°48′E / 20.783°S 114.800°E / -20.783; 114.800), both off Australia. It lives at depths of between 64 and 184 m.[3]

Females grow to 58 mm in mantle length (ML). Males are slightly larger, reaching 61 mm ML.[3]

The type specimen was collected off Point Cloates in Western Australia (22°43′S 113°40′E / 22.717°S 113.667°E / -22.717; 113.667). It is deposited at the Australian Museum in Sydney.[4]
