Sepia carinata is a species of cuttlefish native to the western Pacific Ocean, specifically southern Japan, Sagami Bay, the South China Sea, and Vietnam. Depth range is lower sublittoral, to 128 m.
Reid et al. note that "this is likely to be a very rare species as it has not been recorded from Japanese waters since its original description".
