Abstract From January to May 2008, the first historical strandings of Peponocephala electra Gray (Melon-headed Whale) and Lagenorhynchus acutus Gray (Atlantic White-sided Dolphin) were recorded in South Carolina. A mass stranding of three Melon-headed Whales (2 males, 1 female) was recorded on 11 January 2008 along the Horry County coast in the cities of Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Three additional Melon-headed Whales (1 male, 1 female, and 1 unknown sex) stranded as single…

FIRST SIGHTINGS OF MELON‐HEADED WHALES (PEPONOCEPHALA ELECTRA) IN THE GULF OF MEXICO
Little is known about the distribution of the melon-headed whale (Peponocephala electra). It is thought to be distributed worldwide in subtropical and tropical waters (Perrin 1976, Leatherwood and
Observations of Peponocephala electra, the Melon-headed Whale, in the Southeastern Caribbean
A little known odontocete, Peponocephala electra (Gray, 1846), the melon-headed whale, was observed on four occasions between 1991 and 1995 in a 30-km 2 area of the southeastern Caribbean near
Distribution and habitat partitioning by small odontocetes in the Gully, a submarine canyon on the Scotian Shelf
TLDR
The summer distribution of three species of small odontocetes in the highly productive waters in and near the Gully, a submarine canyon on the edge of the Scotian Shelf, is examined.
Atlantic White-Sided Dolphin: Lagenorhynchus acutus
Lagenorhynchus acutus off Cape Cod
Lagenorhynchus acutus (Gray), often called the white-sided porpoise, is a reasonably well-known form reported from both sides of the northern North Atlantic. Its northern limit is generally given as
Temperature-based summer habitat partitioning between white-beaked and common dolphins around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland
TLDR
A classification tree analysis found that of the four eco-geographical variables analysed, temperature was the most important variable for separating the occurrence of the two species, consistent with widespread temperature-based niche partitioning between white-beaked and common dolphins in shelf waters around the UK and ROI.
Variation of spotted and spinner porpoise (genus Stenella) in the Eastern Pacific and Hawaii
Spotted and spinner porpoise occur in coastal and offshore tropical waters of the eastern and central Pacific, as well as elsewhere in world tropical waters. They are important in the tropical
ABUNDANCE OF CETACEANS IN THE OCEANIC NORTHERN GULF OF MEXICO, 1996–2001
TLDR
The Gulf of Mexico is a subtropical marginal sea of the western North Atlantic Ocean with a diverse cetacean community and, whereas many species were widely distributed, some had more regional distributions.
