          Abstract

          The Spinner Dolphin Stenella longirostris longirostris (Gray, 1828) has been reported from most of the island groups from Micronesia, except for Kosrae. On 25 June 2014 we observed a pod of about 10 dolphins at Molsron Yela, Kosrae. Our photos of the dolphins confirm their identity as S. l. longirostris, based on the extremely long and slender snout combined with the tricolored pattern of a dark gray cape, gray sides, and white belly. This provides the first documented record for Kosrae.
