Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The barnacle Megabalanus tintinnabulum was naturally only found in tropical waters. Its exact place of origin is unknown, although some suggest the western coast of Africa and the Indo-Pacific region. The species was already observed in the Netherlands in 1764, on ship’s hulls. Populations of this species were discovered on buoys along the Belgian coast in 1998. The barnacle is part of the fouling community of ship’s hulls and other hard substrates. As a result of its big size, this barnacle competes with indigenous barnacles.  [details]
