Balanus amphitrite or Amphibalanus amphitrite? A note on barnacle nomenclature

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

In a recent revision of the Balanidae based on morphological systematics, the much studied fouling species Balanus amphitrite was renamed Amphibalanus amphitrite. Here, the case is made for retaining the former nomenclature. Taxonomists are urged to exercise caution before introducing new formal taxonomies, which should ideally be based on several independent lines of evidence.
