A beach-washed carcass of a southern right whale dolphin (Lissodelphis peronii) in December 2013 was the ninth confirmed stranding record from Tasmania. Details of the carcass are presented, and all previous records from Tasmania tabulated for the first time. A seasonal pattern in records may be present, with the majority of records being from winter to early spring, possibly indicative of migration past Tasmania.
