Abstract: Introduction: Cirripedes, or barnacles, are highly modified crustaceans. The more than 3000 species of barnacles nevertheless belong to three widely different superorders (Thoracica, Acrothoracica, and Rhizocephala) and exhibit an extreme variation in morphology and mode of life (Fig. 1). Species of the Thoracica occur as two distinct morphological types (Anderson, 1994): barnacles with a “house” of shell plates situated at the tip of a peduncle (or stalk) belong to the paraphyletic assemblage “Pedunculata,” whereas those without a peduncle and consisting of a closed, conical house of shell plates cemented directly to the substrate belong to the monophyletic Sessilia. Sessilia consists of Verrucomorpha (the “asymmetric” barnacles) and the much larger Balanomorpha, or acorn barnacles. The body (soma) of both pedunculate and sessilian barnacles is suspended inside the wall of shell plates and carry six pairs of thoracic appendages, or cirri.
