  author={P. Wirtz and R. Ara{\'u}jo and A. Southward},
  journal={Helgoland Marine Research},
We give a list of Cirripedia from Madeira Island and nearby deep water, based on specimens in the collection of the Museu Municipal do Funchal (História Natural) (MMF), records mentioned in the literature, and recent collections. Tesseropora atlantica Newman and Ross, 1976 is recorded from Madeira for the first time. The Megabalanus of Madeira is M. azoricus. There are 20 genera containing 27 species, of which 22 occur in depths less than 200 m. Of these shallow water species, eight are wide… Expand

First record of a tropical shallow water barnacle Tetraclita sp. (Cirripedia: Tetraclitoidea) from the middle Neogene of the Canary Islands
This paper describes the first record of the intertidal, tropical tetraclitoid barnacle Tetraclita sp. cf. T. stalactifera (Lamarck, 1818) from the middle Neogene of the Canary Islands. The barnaclesExpand
First account on deep-sea stalked barnacles from the Canary Islands (NE Atlantic), with an updated checklist of the Cirripedia, Thoracica and their hosts in the area
This annotated checklist includes 32 species of the Cirripedia Thoracica; four of them are recorded for the first time from the Canaries: Poecilasma aurantia, PoECilasma crassa, Heteralepas microstoma and Aurivillialepas falcata. Expand

A checklist of published records of coronuloid barnacles attached to marine vertebrates is presented, with 44 species (including 15 fossil species) belonging to 14 genera and 3 families recorded. Expand
New alien barnacles in the Azores and some remarks on the invasive potential of Balanidae
In the Azores, for the first time, underwater alien species prospection was conducted in marinas and recreational harbours, at São Miguel Island, and populations of three locally previously unknown barnacle species were found. Expand
A description of the larval development of Megabalanus azoricus (Pilsbry, 1916) reared in the laboratory
This work provides the first description of larvae of the genus Megabalanus for the Portuguese oceanic islands and provides comparisons with congeneric species in other parts of the world. Expand
Shallow water Cirripedia of the northeastern coast of Brazil: The impact of life history and invasion on biogeography
This paper reports on shallow water barnacles listed in inventories carried out by several authors and collected from the northeastern coast of Brazil; it pays particular attention to commensalExpand
Reproductive biology of Megabalanus azoricus (Pilsbry), the Azorean Barnacle
Summary The reproductive biology of Megabalanus azoricus (Pilsbry), the commercially exploited barnacle in the Azores, was studied in an attempt to provide the scientific basis for the sustainableExpand
Sessile and sedentary macrofauna from the Pirapama Shipwreck, Pernambuco, Brazil
The Pirapama's biodiversity was considered typical when compared to other shipwrecks that have been studied around the world, and 13 listed species for each were recorded. Expand
Checklist of Cryptogenic and Alien Crustacea of the European Atlantic Coast
The established introductions are primarily from Indo-Pacific, Atlantic America and Mediterranean-Ponto-Caspian regions, and the primary vectors that have brought these species to Europe are ballast water, ship fouling and mariculture activity. Expand


New observations on barnacles (Crustacea: Cirripedia) of the Azores region
The degree of endemicity of Azorean barnacles is currently being revised, but most species reported from the Azores are widely distributed in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and the diversity of the shallow water group is low. Expand
A new pedunculate barnacle (Cirripedia: Heteralepadidae) from the Northwest Atlantic
The new species is more similar to some from the Indo-West Pacific than to any of the 8 previously known species from the Atlantic and can be distinguished from Atlantic but not some Pacific species by some characters. Expand
New records of marine invertebrates from the Cape Verde Islands.
During several night-dives, this species was observed and photographed in a depth range of 10 – 22 m. The species is unmistakable (e.g. photo of animal from Tenerife, Canary Islands in WIRTZ 1995, pExpand
Verruca stroemia and Verruca spengleri (Crustacea: Cirripedia): distribution in the north-eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea
The geographic distribution of Verruca stroemia and V. spengleri are reviewed. Verruca stroemia ranges from the White, Barents, Norwegian, and North Seas south to Portugal to the Algarve and toExpand
Isolation of Intertidal Animals by Sea Barriers
It is established that several intertidal animals common in south-west Britain are not present in Ireland, and that the barnacle and limpet, both of which are found on the south coast of England west of the Isle of Wight, and off South Wales, are absent. Expand
Checklist of the Benthic Marine Plants of the Madeira Archipelago
Abstract A checklist of the benthic marine plants of the archipelago of Madeira is presented based on published information and personal observations. This list includes 1 Spermatophyte and 359 algalExpand
Thoughts on the ecology and evolution of the intertidal biota of the Azores and other Atlantic islands
The role of isolated islands in allopatric speciation of these organisms is discussed in relation to dispersal and the usefulness of Macaronesia as a model system to explore speciation in intertidal organisms is emphasized. Expand
Range extension and reproduction of the barnacle Balanus perforatus in the eastern English Channel
The distribution of the warm-water barnacle, Balanus perforatus, was surveyed along the south coast of England and the north-east coast of France between 1993 and 2001, repeating work carried outExpand
On the distribution of the intertidal barnacles Chthamalus stellatus, Chthamalus montagui and Euraphia depressa
The third European species of chthamalid, Euraphia depressa, has a more restricted vertical distribution and is almost entirely confined to the Mediterranean Sea, where it favours high-intertidal levels in wave-beaten places, and also cryptic habitats. Expand
The recent species of Megabalanus (Cirripedia: Balanomorpha) with special emphasis on Balanus Tintinnabulum (Linnaeus) Sensu Lato
Two taxa confounded by Darwin are reestablished and Lectotypes are designated for M. tintinnabulum sensu stricto and M. occator. Expand
