Abstract

New taxa of thoracican cirripedes are recorded from the Eocene Mo Clay of northwest Jutland, Denmark, namely Stipilepas molerensis Carriol n. gen., n. sp., a scalpelliform gooseneck barnacle, and Plesiobrachylepas jutlandica Carriol n. gen., n. sp., a brachylepadomorph sessile form. This material is of importance in that the former not only represents the first extinct example of the tribe Ashinkailepadini, it also is the second fossil neolepadine, while the latter adds to the diversity of the family Brachylepadidae, which previously embraced only three genera. The geological context of these taxa is outlined and their phylogenetic interest discussed.
