Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien 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]
