The large squalodontid whale Squalodon whitmorei is described from a nearly complete skeleton from the Calvert Formation (Middle Miocene), eastern Virginia. The technical description of skeletal elements is preceded by a review of relevant taxonomic literature, and the conclusion drawn that the nominal genus Kellogia (Mchedlidze 1976) is a junior subjective synonym of Squalodon. The status of other names proposed for apparently related whales is also discussed; S. whitmorei appears to be most closely allied to S. barbarus (Mchedlidze) from Oligocene strata in Azerbaidzhan.
