Tursiops truncatus Montagu, 1821 accepted

Until recently, the Indian Ocean bottlenose dolphin T. aduncus was included in this taxon. At least some populations of Australian bottlenose dolphins (but maybe not all) should now be referred to the latter species (see CAAB taxon report for T. aduncus).

Tursiops truncatus (Montagu, 1821) accepted
Tursiops truncatus Ehrenberg, 1833 synonym

Recently confirmed to be a separate species on the basis of molecular evidence (Curry, 1997). Prior to that, included within morphological range of T. truncatus. It is presumed that true T. truncatus also occurs in offshore Australian waters. According to Wells and Scott (2002), T. aduncus tends to be smaller than T. truncatus, has a proportionately longer rostrum and develops ventral spotting when sexually mature.
