From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The striped barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite is a cosmopolitan barnacle that naturally occurs in almost every tropical and subtropical sea. It is a typical fouling species that can reach different places by attaching itself to ship’s hulls. The first specimen in Belgium was found in 1952 in farmed oysters in the port of Ostend. It took till February 1995 till the striped barnacle was commonly found along the Belgian coast. It was thought that the cold winter temperatures would kill off the species in the Belgian regions, but this did not happen. The barnacle today (2011) is a common inhabitant in the port of Ostend. The species thrives well in areas with a certain degree of physical stress or pollution.  [details]
