(2014) only examined samples from two extremes of the distribution of Inia, so is it unclear if the molecular differences observed represented real species-level separation or were due to sampling from two locations separated by a large distance. Northern fur seal, Eumetopias jubatus (Schreber, 1776). However, because this study was based on the examination of very few specimens (only 2 for the new species and only 9 for I. geoffrensis) and did not account for effects of sexual dimorphism within the species, the authors’ conclusions are not persuasive. Antitropical distributions and speciation in dolphins of the genus Lagenorhynchus: A preliminary analysis. Pending a more complete global review and revision of the common dolphins, the long-beaked ENP form is considered here provisionally as a subspecies D. delphis bairdii following the usage of Hershkovitz (1966). In addition, 2 experts provided input through remote participation. Proceedings of the Royal Society B 280:20122645. 2008. International Whaling Commission.

Dwarf sperm whale, Family Ziphiidae (beaked whales, 23 species), Berardius arnuxii Duvernoy, 1851. 2009. List of Marine Mammal Species and Subspecies, Enhydra lutris (Linnaeus, 1758). In some regions, long-beaked common dolphins are genetically more closely related to short-beaked common dolphins than to long-beaked common dolphins in other regions (e.g., see Natoli et al. I believe that Phoca vitulina (and P. v. vitulina) should be followed by the author name and year without parentheses, since the species was listed as such in Linnaeus’ original writing. Looking into the past and the future: were the Madeira River rapids a geographical barrier to the boto (Cetacea: Iniidae)? Heredity 101:145—155. (2003) hold that there is no evidence that would support the classification of the right whales as more than a single biological species. While a majority of committee members supported the changes proposed by Vollmer et al. The long-beaked common dolphin of the Indian Ocean is retained as a subspecies D. delphis tropicalis.

Fraser’s dolphin, Lagenorhynchus acutus (Gray, 1828). 2011. The long-lost holotype skull of the gray seal Halichoerus grypus has been rediscovered and shown by DNA analysis to hail from the Baltic rather than from Greenland as previously thought (Olsen et al. Marine Mammal Science 33:132—155. The genetic divergence between the Iberian and Mauritanian porpoises and the northern populations living on the European continental shelf north of the Bay of Biscay is as large as the genetic divergence reported between the Black Sea population and the populations north of the Bay of Biscay. Marine Mammal Science 30:1494—1541. 2019. The aim of a World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) is to provide an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms, including information on synonymy. Some of you may also come up with the names of sea turtles, sea snakes, and marine mammals like dolphins and whales. The world’s rarest whale. Jedensjö M., C. M. Kemper, M. Milella, E. P. Willems, M. Krützen. WoRMS maintains valid names of all marine organisms, but also provides information on synonymsand invalid names. Wang et al. Marine Mammal Science 27:769—792. Smithsonian Contributions to Paleobiology 80:1—611. So as we approach the end of the year it is time to think about nominations for The WoRMS Top Ten Marine Species of 2020! (2020) have examined morphological characteristics of Tursiops specimens from the western South Atlantic. Cuvier’s beaked whale, goose-beaked whale, Platanista gangetica (Lebeck, 1801). A mixture of terrestrial and marine expertise was represented from various countries around the world. Thompson, K., C. S. Baker, A. van Helden, S. Paatel, C. Millar and R. Constantine. Consistent with the use of Cetacea as an un-ranked unit, we also include the un-ranked taxon Pinnipedia. Galapagos fur seal, Arctocephalus gazella (Peters, 1876). Kato, H. and W. F. Perrin. In this section of the site you'll find information about how to keep a number of saltwater fish in aquariums. https://doi.org/10.1002/jmor.21121. You can browse our marine fish profiles either by scientific name or by common name. Proposals for new, taxonomically distinct taxa require a formal, peer-reviewed study and should provide robust evidence that some subspecies or species criterion was met. Zoological Studies 54:36 doi.10.1186/s40555-015-0115-x. Bowhead whale, Greenland whale, Eubalaena glacialis (Müller, 1776). Best regards, We have suggested a new sub-species name for those meridional NE Atlantic porpoise (Phocoena phocoena meridionalis). In the week of 3-7 February 2020, the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) – host of Aphia, the online platform behind WoRMS and its many subregisters – welcomed 14 Mollusca experts for 5 days, to further expand the content of MolluscaBase. Based on molecular and morphological data, the cetaceans fall firmly within the artiodactyl clade (Geisler and Uhen, 2005), and therefore we include them in the order Cetartiodactyla, with Cetacea, Mysticeti and Odontoceti provisionally as unranked taxa (recognizing that the classification within Cetartiodactyla remains partially unresolved — e.g., see Spaulding et al. 2020. Thus, the conclusion that the Bolivian Inia above the Teotonio Rapids possessed unique mtDNA (a major line of evidence for recognizing species-level distinctness of I. boliviensis) was not supported by more extensive sampling (i.e., the initial appearance of separation was an artifact of poor sampling). The Committee omits some described species and subspecies because of concern about their biological distinctness; reservations are given in the, Common names are arbitrary and change with time and place; one or two frequently used names in English and/or a range language are given here. The super-tree analysis by Nyakatura and Bininda-Emonds (2012) accords with the phylogenetic analysis of Higdon et al. Mesoplodon perrini was described by Dalebout et al. Multiple fossil calibrations, nuclear loci and mitochondrial genomes provide new insight into biogeography and divergence timing for true seals (Phocidae, Pinnipedia). 2006). Scheel et al.

Harlin-Cognato (2010) recognized L. obscurus posidonia (Peru/Chile). ... From 25-28th November 2019, 12 thematic editors of the Register of Antarctic Species (RAS) and the Register of Antarctic Marine Species (RAMS) met in Ostend to discuss the application of trait data in the Aphia platform in the context of the Southern Ocean and the Antarctic region. Kinze, C. C. 2018. Journal of Marine Animals and Their Ecology 4:3—16. Description of a new species of beaked whale (Berardius) found in the North Pacific. Common bottlenose dolphin, Family Phocoenidae (porpoises, 7 species), Neophocaena phocaenoides (G. Cuvier, 1829). The Committee’s focus is on alpha taxonomy (describing and naming taxa) and beta taxonomy primarily at lower levels of the hierarchy (subspecies, species and genera), although it may evaluate issues at higher levels if deemed necessary. Common names are arbitrary and change with time and place; one or two frequently used names in English and/or a range language are given here. The islands of the Philippines have an impressive range of marine life, deeming them popular among divers worldwide. (2019). The following polychaetes are found within the coral cap region of the sanctuary (0-130 ft, 0-40m deep). South American fur seal, Arctocephalus forsteri (Lesson, 1828). Sea mink (extinct), PINNIPEDIA (eared seals, sea lions, walrus, earless seals; 35 species, of which 2 extinct), Family Otariidae (eared seals and sea lions; 15 species, of which 1 extinct), Arctocephalus australis (Zimmermann, 1783). Juan Fernandez fur seal, Arctocephalus pusillus (Schreber, 1775). (2009) concluded that a purported third subspecies of the walrus Odobenus rosmarus laptevi is not warranted. (2016) recommended subspecies status for the larger coastal form found between southern Brazil and northern Argentina, while both Wickert et al. Journal of Heredity 93:312—322. Burmeister’s porpoise, Phocoenoides dalli (True, 1885). Pages 1—20 in B. Würsig and M. Würsig (eds). Primary objection to the changes focused on remaining uncertainties in some relationships and the potential confusion that may be created if the proposed changes require further revision in the near future. Phylogenetic analysis of mtDNA sequences suggests revision of humpback dolphin (Sousa spp.) (2011) for Stenella longirostris and Tursiops truncatus, respectively); 3) comparisons of external morphology and non-metric characters were made only with T. truncatus, to the exclusion of T. aduncus; and 4) support for important nodes in molecular trees suggesting phylogenetic separation was low. Commerson’s dolphin, Cephalorhynchus eutropia (Gray, 1846). 2014). As such, the authors suggested that porpoises from Iberia and Mauritania should be raised to the level of subspecies, at the same taxonomic level as the porpoises from the Black Sea.
