Additional information Kolbasov et al. (2016) reviewed the genus Conopea and concluded this genus only composed of 20 epizoic species. inhabiting alcyonaceans and antipatharians.
Hitherto species of the nominal genus Conopea fell into three natural groups affiliated to three archaeobalanid genera, Conopea s.s., Acasta and Solidobalanus.
Thus, the nominal genus Conopea s.l. includes species belong to three genera: Conopea s.s. (C. acuta, C. basicuneata, C. calceola, C. cornuta, C. cymbiformis, C. exothobasis, C. fidelis, C. galeata, C. granulata, C.investita, C. margaretae, C. minyrostrum, C. mjobergi, C. proripiens, C. sabangensis, C. saotomensis, C. scandens, C. sinensis, C. titani and C. willhearsti.), Acasta (A. canaliculata, A. dentifer, A. folliculus, A. fragilis, A. longibasis, A. navicula, A. pygmaea and A. squamosa) and Solidobalanus (S. merrilli). [details]

Diagnosis The barnacles of the genus Conopea s.s. are characterized by a strong, firm shell; the
orifice is not dentate; rostral and sometimes carinal plates are often elongated in their basal parts; the rostro-carinal axis of the basis is often elongated and clasps the axis of the host coral; the radii have summits parallel to the basal margin of the parietes, and denticulated sutural margins; the scutum has simple growth ridges without longitudinal striation or ribs; the basitergal angle is truncated (sinusoid); and the basidorsal point of the penis is developed. [details]
