Taxonomy
Odontoceti was named by Flower (1867). It is extant. It was considered monophyletic by Uhen (2008) and Lambert et al. (2010).

It was corrected as Odontocete by Hay (1902); it was reranked as the unranked clade Odontoceti by Gregory (1910), Van Deinse (1931), McKenna and Bell (1997), Hulbert and Whitmore (2006), Bianucci and Landini (2007), Pyenson and Hoch (2007), Agnarsson and May-Collado (2008), Uhen (2008), Rice (2009), Canto et al.

It was assigned to Cetacea by Gregory (1910); to Cete by Hay (1902) and Hay (1930); to Autoceta by McKenna and Bell (1997); to Autoceta by Geisler and Sanders (2003); to Cetacea by Pyenson and Hoch (2007), Agnarsson and May-Collado (2008) and Rice (2009); to Cetacea by Hulbert and Whitmore (2006) and Canto et al.
