Abstract
    In 1869, a whale was captured in the Schelde estuary near Vlissingen (Netherlands). The author was able to save the whole skeleton of this Balaenoptera, and gives an extensive description of all parts of it, with drawings. The animal is identified as Balaenoptera musculus and a list of observations for this species at the Belgian and Dutch coasts since 1765 is given.
