Phylogeography of animals provides clues to processes governing their evolution and diversification. The Indian Ocean has been hypothesized as a ‘dispersal corridor’ connecting hydrothermal vent fauna of Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Stalked barnacles of the family Eolepadidae are common associates of deep-sea vents in Southern, Pacific and Indian oceans, and the family is an ideal group for testing this hypothesis. Here, we describe Neolepas marisindica sp. nov. from the Indian Ocean… 
A new deep-sea hot vent stalked barnacle from the Mariana Trough with notes on the feeding ecology of Vulcanolepas
A new species of deep-sea neolepadid stalked barnacle, Vulcanolepas verenae sp. nov. , is described from Hafa Adai hydrothermal vent field in the Mariana back-arc basin, northwest Pacific.
A new trochoidean gastropod (Vetigastropoda: Skeneidae) discovered from deep-sea hydrothermal vents in the Southern Ocean
Taxonomic and systematic investigations revealed the new species to be a species hitherto unknown to science in the skeneid genus Bruceiella, which is apparently endemic to the chemosynthetic ecosystems of the Southern Ocean.
First discovery of the sessile barnacle Eochionelasmus (Cirripedia: Balanomorpha) from a hydrothermal vent field in the Indian Ocean
The new species of chionelasmatid sessile vent barnacle, Eochionelasmus coreana sp.
A new neolepadid cirripede from a Pleistocene cold seep, Krishna-Godavari Basin, offshore India
Valves of a thoracican cirripede belonging to a new species of the Neolepadidae, Ashinkailepas indica Gale sp. nov. are described from a Late Pleistocene cold seep (52.6 ka), cored in the
Fauna of the Kemp Caldera and its upper bathyal hydrothermal vents (South Sandwich Arc, Antarctica)
Multivariate analysis of fauna at Kemp Caldera and vents in neighbouring areas indicated that the Kemp CalderA is most similar to vent fields in the previously established Southern Ocean vent biogeographic province, showing that the species composition at island-arc hydrothermal vents can be distinct from nearby seafloor-spreading systems.
Structure and Connectivity of Hydrothermal Vent Communities Along the Mid-Ocean Ridges in the West Indian Ocean: A Review
To date, 13 biologically active hydrothermal vent (HTV) fields have been described on the West Indian Ocean ridges. Knowledge of benthic communities of these vent ecosystems serves as scientific


Low connectivity between ‘scaly-foot gastropod’ (Mollusca: Peltospiridae) populations at hydrothermal vents on the Southwest Indian Ridge and the Central Indian Ridge
The phylogeography revealed for C. squamiferum indicates low connectivity between SWIR and CIR vent populations, with implications for the future management of environmental impacts for seafloor mining at hydrothermal vents in the region, as proposed for Longqi.
Evolutionary and biogeographical patterns of barnacles from deep‐sea hydrothermal vents
It is suggested that the geological processes and dispersal mechanisms discussed here can explain the current distribution patterns of many other marine taxa and have played an important role shaping deep‐sea faunal diversity.
Ecology and biogeography of megafauna and macrofauna at the first known deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the ultraslow-spreading Southwest Indian Ridge
The Southwest Indian Ridge is the longest section of very slow to ultraslow-spreading seafloor in the global mid-ocean ridge system, but the biogeography and ecology of its hydrothermal vent fauna
Systematics and ecology of a new species of stalked barnacle (Cirripedia: Thoracica: Scalpellomorpha: Eolepadidae: Neolepadini) from the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge at 38° S
The adult specimens were accompanied by large numbers of juveniles and recently settled individuals, suggesting either good recruitment or slow growth, and the coating of the capitulum and stalk indicate the vent fluid was rich in heavy metals.
Adaptations to Hydrothermal Vent Life in Kiwa tyleri, a New Species of Yeti Crab from the East Scotia Ridge, Antarctica
Hydrothermal vents in the Southern Ocean are the physiologically most isolated chemosynthetic environments known. Here, we describe Kiwa tyleri sp. nov., the first species of yeti crab known from the
The biogeography of the yeti crabs (Kiwaidae) with notes on the phylogeny of the Chirostyloidea (Decapoda: Anomura)
A nine-gene dataset across 15 chirostyloids, including all known yeti crabs (Kiwaidae), is presented to improve the resolution of phylogenetic affinities within and between the different families, and to date key divergences using fossil calibrations.
A revision of stalked barnacles (Cirripedia: Thoracica: Scalpellomorpha: Eolepadidae: Neolepadinae) associated with hydrothermalism, including a description of a new genus and species from a volcanic seamount off Papua New Guinea
The new genus and species from Lihir Island also differs from Neolepas osheai described from the Kermadec Ridge, which, together with an undescribed species discovered on the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge, belongs to another new genus.
Vulcanolepas scotiaensis sp. nov., a new deep-sea scalpelliform barnacle (Eolepadidae: Neolepadinae) from hydrothermal vents in the Scotia Sea, Antarctica.
A new deep-sea stalked barnacle is described from hydrothermal vents at depths of 2400-2600 metres along segments of the East Scotia Ridge and from 1400 metres in the Kemp Caldera, confirming a wide distribution in southern seas for Vulcanolepas, complementing the previous records from deep- sea vents in the Lau Basin and Kermadec Ridge in the southwest Pacific.
A cold seep barnacle (Cirripedia: Neolepadinae) from Japan and the age of the vent/seep fauna
A new pedunculate barnacle, Ashinkailepas seepiophila gen. and sp. nov. has been recovered from a hydrothermal cold seep at 1175 metres of depth off Hatsushima Island, Sagami Bay, central Japan. It
