The Indo-West Pacific Genus Pagurolepas (Cirripedia, Poecilasmatidae) in Floridan Waters
Abstract:Pagurolepas conchicola Stubbings, a small, aberrant pedunculate barnacle occurring in the interior of gastropod shells occupied by shell-inhabiting hermit crabs, was known previously from the Indian Ocean and Japan. The present report constitutes the first record from the tropical Western Atlantic. Materials taken from all localities are too meagre to allow one to determine the range of variability in the species. However, the Western Atlantic form appears to differ sufficiently from those described from the Indo-West Pacific to be considered at least a distinct subspecies.
