Abstract

New information on the microstructures, general morphology, and features of preservation of plates of a whalebone from the Miocene Kovran locality in the Kamchatka Peninsula are provided. The plates have a chevron-like bend which is absent in extant Balaenopteridae, Balaenidae, and Eschrichtiidae. This shape is possibly related to the filtration mechanism characteristic of these whales.
