Sepia angulata is a species of cuttlefish native to the southeastern Atlantic Ocean, from Bloubergstrand (33°48′S 18°27′E / 33.800°S 18.450°E / -33.800; 18.450) to Still Bay (34°23′S 21°25′E / 34.383°S 21.417°E / -34.383; 21.417). It is known only from cuttlebones.[3] The validity of S. angulata has been questioned.[4]

Cuttlebones of this species are up to 75 mm in length.[3]

The type specimen was collected near Bloubergstrand, South Africa (33°48′S 18°27′E / 33.800°S 18.450°E / -33.800; 18.450) and is deposited at the South African Museum.[4]
