The horned octopus, Eledone cirrhosa(Lamarck, 1798), is found in the Northeast Atlantic from ca. 66–67°N south to Moroccan waters and throughout the Mediterranean Sea (Norman et al., 2014) (Figure 4.2). In the northernmost part of its distribution, the spe-cies extends to southern Iceland, the Faroe Islands (Bruun, 1945), and the west coast of Norway (Nordgård, 1923; Grieg, 1933), where it seems to reach Ostnesfjord in Lofoten, although it is rarely found north of Trondjemsfjord (Grieg, 1933).
