Abstract

The present paper is the first annotated account listing all species of Cirripedia: Thoracica recorded from the Canary Islands (eastern Atlantic Ocean) together with notes on their distribution and ecology. Voucher specimens have been deposited as reference material in the collection of the Instituto Canario de Ciencias Marinas. Seventeen species are listed and seven of them are recorded for the first time for the Canaries: Lepas hilli, Conchoderma virgatum, Xenobalanus globicipitis, Chthamalus sp. (cf. C. proteus), Acasta cyathus, Balanus trigonus and Perforatus perforatus.
