Spectacled porpoise phocoena dioptrica new record to the subantarctic pacific ocean


New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research 11(2): 401-406
Spectacled porpoise phocoena dioptrica new record to the subantarctic pacific ocean
A cranium of P. dioptrica Lahille, 1912, collected at Enderby Island, Auckland Islands, represents the first discovery of the species in the Pacific Ocean, the 10 previous records being all from the south-western Atlantic. The species may thus have a circumpolar distribution in subantarctic latitudes. A list of 6 small cetacean spp. now known from New Zealand's subantarctic region is appended [Ziphius cavirostris (Cuvier), Globicephala melaena (Traill), Lagenorhynchus obscurus (Gray), L. cruciger (d'Orbigny), Lissodelphis peroni (Lacepede), Phocoena dioptrica (Lahille)].
