Taxonomy Some workers prefer use of this name for the sperm whale, rather than P. macrocephalus, also described by Linnaeus (1758), based on their interpretation of Linnaeus' diagnoses of the two nominal species and belief that P. macrocephalus refers to the pilot whale Globicephala melas. However, most workers now consider both names to refer to the sperm whale, with P. macrocephalus having line priority on the page in Linnaeus' work. [details]
