Abstract: This paper is based on the study of 484 specimens collected off three different districts of Santa Cruz (Caleta Olivia, Puerto Deseado and Río Gallegos)and the northern coastal region of Malvinas Islands. The following items have been developed: -a brief description of the clupeoids present in the southern patagonic area where the sardine lives, and a key to their identification; -the updated systematic position of the species and its bibliographical references; -a description of the external morphology; -a statistical analysis of morphometric and meristic character; and geographic distribution and movements. It is possible to presume the existence of two geographically separated groups, one in the coasts off Santa Cruz Province and another around Malvinas Islands.
