Mysticeti sunt parvordo mammalium marinorum infraordinis Cetaceorum, late distributus variusque carnivororum grex. Familias Balaenidarum, Balaenopteridarum, Cetotheriidarum, et Eschrichtiidarum comprehendunt. Sunt quindecim Mysticetorum species vivae. Mysticeti ab odontocetis abhinc annorum 34 milliones fere deflexerunt.

Magnitudine variant a 6 metra et 3000 kg ponderis (Caperea marginata) ad 31 metra et 190 megatonnae ponderis (Balaenoptera musculus), maximum animal notum quod umquam existit.[1][2]

Taxinomia[recensere | fontem recensere]

Mysticeti in quattuor familiis exstantibus consistunt, quae sunt Balaenidae, Balaenopteridae, Cetotheriidae, Eschrichtiidae.
