Abstract: Blainville's beaked whale (Mesoplodon densirostris) was positively identified in the waters around New Caledonia from two strandings, one live sighting, and two rostra collected from the seafloor. This is the only species of Ziphiidae reported so far from the New Caledonian archipelago and adjacent waters.
