Additional information In Chan et al. (2021): The name Sessilia is used for the monophyletic taxon comprising the Verrucomorpha and the Balanomorpha. In most analyses, these two orders are sister groups with high support (Figs 7, 8). We recognize this relationship but decided to leave the Sessilia clade without a formal rank, because we can then conveniently have the Verrucomorpha
and Balanomorpha as orders. The Sessilia name refers to the lack of a peduncle but is misleading because such loss also occurred convergently in the Neolepadoidea (Neoverrucidae). The verrucomorphans and balanomorphans are otherwise morphologically
and biologically distinct. The Verrucomorpha has a strongly asymmetrical disposition of the wall plates and an opercular lid formed by a movable scutum and tergum (Darwin, 1851; Gale, 2014b). The Balanomorpha, often called acorn barnacles, are perfectly symmetrical, with an operculum that evolved convergently with the verrucomorphans and a wall that includes so-called marginal plates unique to that lineage (Gale & Sørensen, 2014). The ‘sessilian’ forms
lack a peduncle, both as adults and during ontogeny,
and this can be seen as a synapomorphy that evolved
in their brachylepadid ancestors, such as Pycnolepas
Withers, 1914 (Gale, 2014b). The two extant lineages
have independently lost the upper latus and
imbricating peduncular plates. [details]
