 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: CITES - Appendix II; IUCN - Data Deficient  
    Comments: Reviewed by Brownell (1975a, Mammalian Species, 66). Barnes (1985) proposed Australophocoena to house this species, but Rosel et al. (1995) did not find the generic separation warranted. Phocaena obtusata is synonymous with Cephalorhynchus eutropia. See Goodall et al. (1988)
