After physical and genetic analyses of dozens of dolphin varieties, a group of researchers from various international institutions have concluded that a new species living in the Pacific Ocean, north of Australia has been discovered.

Another three varieties of dolphins of the same genus were already known: one inhabits the Atlantic Ocean, west of Africa; the second lives in the central and western Indian Ocean; and the third, lives in the eastern and western Pacific Ocean. To reach this latest conclusion, researchers studied 180 skulls and 235 tissue samples from dolphins.
