Cirripede, any of the marine crustaceans of the infraclass Cirripedia (subphylum Crustacea). The best known are the barnacles. Adult cirripedes other than barnacles are internal parasites of marine invertebrates such as crabs, jellyfish, and starfish, and have no common name. Nearly 1, cirripede. The Cretaceous of Jamaica has so far yielded only eleven specimens of decapods belonging to four genera; these are all recorded. One of them, Carcineretes woolacotti, is considered to be a back burrower and not a swimmer as previously thought. The flattened fifth leg of burrowers such as C. woolacotti is considered to be a preadaptation to swimming as seen in the more-advanced Portunoidea.   The unique holotype of Archaeochionelasmus nekvasilovae Kočí, Newman and Buckeridge, , from the upper Cenomanian of the Czech Republic, supposedly an early neobalanomorph belonging to the extant family Chionelasmatidae, is compared in detail with chionelasmatids and rudist bivalves. The morphology and shell structure demonstrate that, rather than Author: Andy S. Gale, Peter W. Skelton.   Subsequently, Carlsson () reviewed the Late Cretaceous and early Palaeocene cirripedes from southern Sweden, but added little to Withers' account, and re-used many of his photographs. The kaolinite quarry at Ivö Klack ceased to be worked in the s, and the exposures of Cretaceous bioclastic limestones have overgrown progressively ever.

N2 - New material of thoracican cirripedes, traditionally assigned to Brachylepadomorpha and basal Balanomorpha, is described from abundant isolated plates collected from sediment deposited between boulders on a rocky coastline of Late Campanian age (c. 80 Ma) at Ivö Klack in Scania, southern Sweden. Diverse thoracican cirripedes from the Hauterivian of the Hannover district of northern Germany are described, including seven species, belonging to five genera. Of these, a new genus belonging to the Scalpellidae, Jaegerscalpellum, includes one Hauterivian species, J. elegans sp. nov., an Aptian species, J. comptum (Withers, ) and an. A new fauna of cirripedes is described from the Cretaceous (Albian and Cenomanian) of northeastern Texas and southern Oklahoma. This includes 14 species assigned to nine genera, included in the. A cladistic analysis of basal scalpellomorph cirripedes was undertaken in order to identify the phylogenetic position of the Stramentidae. This yielded a well-supported tree, in which the family is positioned crownwards of Archaeolepas, but basal to the families Scalpellidae and Zeugmatolepadidae. A new genus, Loriolepas, is described to accommodate some species previously referred to.

Cretaceous Research provides a forum for the rapid publication of research on all aspects of the Cretaceous Period, including its boundaries with the Jurassic and Palaeogene. Authoritative papers reporting detailed investigations of Cretaceous stratigraphy and palaeontology, studies of regional geology, and reviews of recently published books are complemented by short communications of. Mosasaur bite marks on a plesiosaur propodial from the Campanian (Late Cretaceous) of southern Sweden Elisabeth Einarsson Department of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, Division of Geology, Lund University, Sölvega SE 62, Lund, Sweden Correspondence [email protected] The first cirripedes from the Portland and Purbeck groups of southern England are described, and referred to two new species, Loriolepas whytei sp. nov and Etcheslepas portlandensis sp. nov. They constitute the first records of cirripedes from the upper Tithonian (uppermost Jurassic) and Berriasian (lowermost Cretaceous) of western Europe. A revised picture of the stratigraphical distribution of cirripedes from the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, and a discussion of habitat preferences and distributional patterns of each taxon within.
