The Thoracica includes the ordinary barnacles found along the sea shore and is the most diverse and well-studied superorder of Cirripedia. However, although the literature abounds with scenarios explaining the evolution of these barnacles, very few studies have attempted to test these hypotheses in a phylogenetic context. The few attempts at phylogenetic analyses have suffered from a lack of phylogenetic signal and small numbers of taxa. We collected DNA sequences from the nuclear 18S, 28S, and… 
Molecular phylogeny, systematics and morphological evolution of the acorn barnacles (Thoracica: Sessilia: Balanomorpha).
TLDR
Various degrees of convergence were observed in all the assessed morphological characters except the maxillipeds, which suggests that classical interpretations of balanomorphan morphological evolution need to be revised and reinterpreted.
Phylogeny of coral-inhabiting barnacles (Cirripedia; Thoracica; Pyrgomatidae) based on 12S, 16S and 18S rDNA analysis.
TLDR
The phylogenetic results allowed us to reject previous classifications of Pyrgomatidae based on morphological characteristics and suggested the possibility of paraphyly of the Pyrgom atidae.
The tempo and mode of barnacle evolution.
TLDR
The results reject many of the underlying hypotheses about character evolution in the Cirripedia Thoracica, stimulate a variety of new thoughts on thoracican radiation, and suggest the need for a major rearrangement in Thoracican classification based on estimated phylogenetic relationships.
Molecular phylogeny and character evolution of the chthamaloid barnacles (Cirripedia: Thoracica).
TLDR
The maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses separate the Catophragmidae from the Chthamalidae, but do no support a gradual reduction in shell plates, which suggests that evolution at the base of the Balanomorpha involved a considerable amount of homoplasy.
Phylogenetic position and evolutionary history of the turtle and whale barnacles (Cirripedia: Balanomorpha: Coronuloidea).
TLDR
The authors' analyses confirm the monophyly of Coronuloidea and that this superfamily and Tetraclitoidea are sister groups and that the six-plated Austrobalanus clusters with these two superfamilies.
The emergence of lobsters: phylogenetic relationships, morphological evolution and divergence time comparisons of an ancient group (decapoda: achelata, astacidea, glypheidea, polychelida).
TLDR
This study estimated phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of all lobster families and 94% of the genera using six genes (mitochondrial and nuclear) and 195 morphological characters across 173 species of lobsters for the most comprehensive sampling to date.
Gene rearrangement and sequence analysis of mitogenomes suggest polyphyly of Archaeobalanid and Balanid barnacles (Cirripedia: Balanomorpha)
TLDR
It is shown here that the informativeness of the complete mitogenome sequence and rare genomic events in resolving various questions concerning Balanomorpha relationships are most helpful in fully resolving the phylogeny andMitogenome evolutionary history of acorn barnacles.
Towards a barnacle tree of life: integrating diverse phylogenetic efforts into a comprehensive hypothesis of thecostracan evolution
TLDR
This first synthesis tree of Life contains 2,070 barnacles species and subspecies, including 239 barnacle species with phylogenetic information and 198 undescribed or unidentified species, and it is found that the acorn and stalked barnacles, the Thoracica, and the parasitic Rhizocephala have the largest amount of published phylogenetics information.
Deconstructing an assemblage of “turtle” barnacles: species assignments and fickle fidelity in Chelonibia
TLDR
A worldwide molecular phylogenetic survey of Chelonibia collected from nearly all known hosts to assess species relationships, host-fidelity, and phylogeographic structure found that of four species, three are genetically indistinguishable, leading to the conclusion that the three former taxa are morphotypes of the same species and should be synonymized under C. testudinaria.
Phylogenetic position of Antarctic Scalpelliformes (Crustacea: Cirripedia: Thoracica)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of seven Antarctic barnacle species, one verrucomorph and six scalpelliforms from the Scotia, Weddell and Ross seas were investigated using DNA sequences from two nuclear genes and one mitochondrial gene, confirming that the Scalpelliformes are not monophyletic.

PHYLOGENY OF THE THORACICAN BARNACLES BASED ON 18S rDNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
The phylogeny of select Thoracican barnacles was estimated from 18S rDNA sequences, with Sessile barnacles appear to be monophyletic, but pedunculate barnacles may not be, with the Scapelloidea being the sister taxa to the sessile ones.
Cladistic analysis of the Cirripedia Thoracica
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of the Cirripedia Thoracica using morphological characters and the Acrothoracica and Ascothoracida as outgroups reveals that several key questions in cirripede phylogeny remain unsolved, notably the position of shell-less forms and the transition from `pedunculate' to `sessile' barnacles.
REANALYSIS OF THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE CIRRIPEDIA AND THE ASCOTHORACIDA AND THE PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF THE FACETOTECTA (MAXILLOPODA: THECOSTRACA) USING 18S rDNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
The morphological hypothesis that the cirripedes form a monophyletic group, with the Acrothoracica as sister group to the Thoracica + Rhizocephala, strongly supports the model of evolution that fits the data best, and maximum parsimony approaches.
CRAYFISH MOLECULAR SYSTEMATICS: USING A COMBINATION OF PROCEDURES TO ESTIMATE PHYLOGENY
TLDR
A technique developed to estimate intraspecific cladograms com- bined with more traditional methods of phylogenetic estimation can improve the estimate in data sets containing a range of diversity when the lower bound of the range approaches 0% divergence.
Phylogenetic Study of Cirripedes and Selected Relatives (Thecostraca) Based on 18s Rdna Sequence Analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that the Thecostraca, represented here by the subclasses Ascothoracida and Cirripedia (the latter including the Acrothoracica, Rhizocephala, and Thoracica), is a monophyletic taxon.
The Phylogenetic Position of the Rhizocephala: Are They Truly Barnacles?
TLDR
umerous, detailed similarities in nauplii and cyprids of the Thoracica, Acrothoracica and Rhizocephala as well as the ultrastructure of their sperm are synapomorphic relative to other Thecostraca and indicate that these three orders form a monophylum.
Cirripede phylogeny using a novel approach: molecular morphometrics.
TLDR
Molecular morphometrics appears to be complementary to classical primary sequence analysis in phylogenetic studies and supports the most recent morphological analyses arguing for the monophyly of Cirripedia sensu stricto.
ELUCIDATION OF THE PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIP OF THREE THECOSTRACANS, VERRUCA, PARALEPAS, AND DENDROGASTER BASED ON 18S rDNA SEQUENCE
TLDR
The finding that Verruca clusters within the Balanomorpha does not agree with the suggestion that the Verrucomorpha and the Balans evolved independently and that the order Sessilia is a biphyletic taxon, and emphasizes the importance of molecular data in understanding thecostracan evolution.
A New and Primitive Barnacle (Cirripedia: Balanomorpha) from the North Fiji Basin Abyssal Hydrothermal Field, and Its Evolutionary Implications
TLDR
The endemic balanomorph Echione/asmus, from the North Fiji Basin, is new to science and, following its systematics, a new interpretation of the chionelasmatine wall is presented, and a new hypothesis is proposed.
Rate heterogeneity among lineages of tracheophytes: Integration of molecular and fossil data and evidence for molecular living fossils
TLDR
This study minimize the potential error caused by inaccurate topology and uncertain calibration times by using a well-supported tree, multiple genes, and multiple well-substantiated dates to explore the correspondence between the fossil record and molecular-based age estimates for major clades of tracheophytes.
