Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHolotype None designated. Name based on the bottle-nosed whales seen at sea by Kalm "everywhere in the ocean from the channel to the very neighborhood of America," and, basically, on Pennant's description of Dale's "bottle-head whale" found stranded in 1717. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIUCN Red List Category Data Deficient (DD) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorMorphology  Varied in color, ranging from greenish-brown to chocolate and gray. Individuals may be mottles with patches of grayish-white. Coloration is generally lighter on the flanks and underbelly, fading to a white or cream color.The beak is short and cylindrical, resembling a bottle in shape. Both sexes have large, protruding melons that are often vertical anteriorly in older animals and turn yellowish-white with age in males. The melon of the female is not as prominent as that of the male.The posteriorly-curved dorsal fin is 30-38cm in height and is located at a distance of 1/3 the total body length from the tail. The tail flukes lack a medial notch, and the flippers are small and pointed. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorReproduction Mating believed to be polygynous with a single male assoiciating with a group of females during the mating season. Females mature sexually at 8-14 years and males at 7-9 years. Mating occurs in spring and early summer and calves are born from April to June. Gestation is about 12 months and weaning is at around one year. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Maldon, Essex, England, the locale of Dale's (1732)specimen. [details]
