Occurrence of the Floating Barnacle in British Waters


ORTON and Rawlinson record, in NATURE of March 17, the occurrence of Lepas fascicularis and L. pectinata on the Cornish coast in the summer of 1933. As they state that the latter has been recorded only about five times in British waters since 1803, it is worthy of record that several specimens were taken on a box found floating off Port Erin, I.O.M., in April 1933.
