Posted to MARMAM by CSI on behalf of Anoop.A.Krishnan:
 
This is a request for assistance  with determining whether blue whales 
sighted during surveys off Sri Lanka or stranded in India are 
Balaenoptera musculus bravicuda, the pygmy or dwarf blue whale subspecies.

The following researcher has photographs which he would like to share 
with experts, so as to make more positive identifications for scientific 
and management purposes.
