Status It is not clear whether the small-form Bryde's whale arose once or more than once around the globe. All Bryde’s whales are provisionally considered to comprise a single species, Balaenoptera edeni, following the usage of Kato and Perrin (2009), and Kershaw et al. (2013). However, Luksenburg et al. (2015) accepted two species. Some workers recognize B. edeni as including only the small-form coastal Bryde’s whales of the western Pacific and Indian Oceans, using B. brydei for the globally distributed larger more oceanic form (Sasaki et al. 2006). Kato and Perrin (2009) and Kershaw et al. (2013) considered these more likely to be distinct at the subspecific level (although arguably at the species level), and they are included here provisionally as such. Balaenoptera omurai was described by Wada et al. (2003). It was previously confounded with the Bryde’s whale and has been confirmed as having a separate and ancient lineage (Sasaki et al. 2006). [details]
