Abstract: Two females of giant squid Architeuthis sp. were caught by trawlers onthe South Patagonian shelf Argentine Sea in 1998 and 1999. The first specimen was captured during a bottom trawl at 50°39'S-66°35'W in April 1998 and the second during a midwater trawl at 53°54'S-63°45'W in February 1999. The animals were severely damaged, specially on the tentacles, arms and fins. Both specimens, of 177 and 144 cm mantle length, were maturing. The internal and external anatomy and morphometric characters were examined and compared to previous records of this genus in the Southern Oceans.
