Like the Orca, these cetaceans are not actually whales but large marine dolphins. The name "Killer Whale" is due to the fact that Orca's kill whale calves, not membership in a family classification. The "False Killer Whale" is also a member of family Delphinidae but it's genus differs from that of the Orca or their cousins the "Pygmy Killer Whale."
I was delighted to see this article, but would strongly encourage an edit to clarify the difference between predatory marine dolphins and whales. Best Wishes.
