From other sources
Alien species Originally the Australasian barnacle Elminius modestus only occurred in Australia and Asia. During the Second World War the species was introduced into Europe by attaching itself to merchant- and warships. In Belgium the species was first reported attached to a ship's hull in 1950. The Australasian barnacle grows fast and is resistant to changing salinity levels, temperatures, and cloudy water. As a result, this is now the most common barnacle along the Belgian coast. [details]

Distribution Is native to Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. This species reached Europe between 1940 - 1943 and rapidly spread all over on the European coasts. [details]

Ecology Epizoic species. [details]
