Taxonomic revision of Lagenorhynchus[edit]

I found the only available genus for the clade containing the Hourglass and Peale's Dolphins is Sagmatias Cope, 1866. [1] Therefore, Lagenorhynchus cruciger, L. australis, L. obliquidens, and L. obscurus should be changed to Sagmatias cruciger, S. australis, S. obliquidens, and S. obscurus respectively.
