Azevedo, J.M.N. & Barreiros, J.P. (2019) Azores cetaceans updated checklist. Version 1.1. Universidade dos Açores. Dataset/Checklist.

Summary:

All 28 species of Cetaceans known to occurr within the Azores’ EEZ (corresponding to ca. 36% of all 86 cetacean species - including 6 freshwater ones) are listed in this updated checklist. Following the last update (Prieto & Silva, 2010) this “situation point” is presently the basis for further eventual new records. Three species listed here are certainly occasional and/or vagrant (i.e. Eubalaena glacialis, Lagenodelphis hosei and Phocoena phocoena). For an updated cheklist on the world’s cetaceans see Perrin (2019).
