Abstract

THE BARNACLE, CONCHODERMA VIRGATUM (SPENGLER), IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE ISOPOD, NEROCILA ACUMINATA SCHIOEDTE & MEINERT, AND THE ORANGE FILEFISH, ALUTERA SCHOEPF1 (WALBAUM) BY ROBERT W. HASTINGS Department of Biological Science, Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida 32306, U.S.A. The pedunculate barnacle, Conchoderma virgatum (Spengler), although most often found attached to inanimate objects such as ship hulls and buoys, is com- monly found associated with other living organisms. Records include direct attach- ment to 13 species of fishes, as well as to crabs, sea snakes, turtles, whales, and sea weed, and to another pedunculate barnacle, Conchoderma auritum (Linnaeus) (table I). It has also been recorded attached to pennellid and lernaeid copepods parasitizing 8 species of fishes and two whales. The present paper describes an occurrence of Conchoderma virgatum from the orange filefish, Alutera .rchoep fi (Walbaum), both direct and indirect attachment, and also the first reported occurrence of this barnacle on a parasitic isopod. A large Alutera .rchoep fi (383 mm total length; 318 mm standard length) was collected 4 April 1970, in a lagoon on the west end of Shell Island at the west entrance to St. Andrew Bay near Panama City, Florida (30°07.1'N 85°43.7'W).
