Abstract

Acorn barnacle Microeuraphia depressa (Poli, 1791) (Thecostraca: Balanomorpha: Chthamalidae) was recently found (March 2021), in the Romanian Black Sea. Compact populations were found during a rapid biofouling survey in Constanta harbour on artificial hard substrata from the waterline up to 20 cm. Some hypothesis regarding actual and historical presence in the Romanian waters are discussed.
