FAMILY Otariidae

Author:Gray, 1825.
Citation:Ann. Philos., n.s., 10: 340.
Comments:Reviewed by Allen (1880, 1892), Repenning et al. (1971), Mitchell and Tedford (1973), King (1983), Berta and Deméré (1986), Barnes (1989) and Wynen et al. (2001). Does not include Odobenus, which was included in a monotypic subfamily (Odobeninae within Otariidae) by Mitchell and Tedford (1973), Tedford (1976), Hall (1981), Barnes (1989), and Wozencraft (1989a, b); however, see Wyss (1987) and Berta (1991). Berta and Deméré (1986) separated Arctocephalus and Callorhinus into the Arctocephalinae. Repenning et al. (1971), Repenning and Tedford (1977), and Wynen et al. (2001) argued against the recognition of subfamilies. Distributional information for species based on Rice (1998).
