Bryde's whale
There is disagreement of whether there are one or two species of Bryde's whale. Wilson & Reeder's Mammal species of the world recognize only one species (Balaenoptera edeni). The current GenBank classification recognizes two species, Balaenoptera brydei (Bryde's whale), with a worldwide tropical and semi-tropical distribution, and Balaenoptera edeni (pygmy Bryde's whale) that is found in coastal waters of the eastern Indian and western Pacific oceans.
