Cephalopod remains from the stomachs of four pilot whales Globicephala melaena (Traill, 1809), two bottlenose whales Hyperoodon planifrons Flower, 1882 and eight Commerson's dolphins Cephalorhynchus commersonii (Lacepede, 1804) stranded in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina were identified and measured. A total of 3365 lower beaks (mandibles) were identified and measured and from the rostral, crest and hood length, total wet and dry mass, mean mass and mean mantle length for each taxon were estimated. Over 68% of the cephalopods eaten by the pilot whales and all cephalopods eaten by the bottlenose whales were oceanic squid species (oegopsids). The Commerson's dolphins had only eaten shelf species of the families Loliginidae (97.5%) and Octopodinae (2.5%). Sixteen cephalopod families comprising 23 species were represented. In samples from Globicephala melaena, Loligo gahi represented 31% by number and 7.1% by estimated dry mass, Histioteuthis eltaninae, 29% by number and 4.9% by dry mass and the onychoteuthid Moroteuthis ingens 17.2% by number and 51.5% by dry mass. In samples from Hyperoodon planifrons, Histioteuthis eltaninae represented 24.0% of cephalopods by number but only 5.2% by dry mass, Taonius pavo 53% by number but only 2.5% by dry mass and the large onychoteuthid Kondakovia longimana only 2.5% by number but 65.8% by dry mass. In samples from Cephalorhynchus commersonii, the neritic Loligo gahi contributed 97.4% by number and 97% by dry mass and a neritic octopodinid contributed the rest of the cephalopod part of the diet. While the cephalopods contributed the major part of the diets of these particular cetaceans, other remains included fish and polychaete worms.
