Resultats Du Voyage Du S. y Belgica

Excerpt from Resultats Du Voyage Du S. Y Belgica: En 1897-1898-1899, Sous Le Commandment De A. De Gerlache De Gomery, Rapports Scientifiques, Publies Aux Frais Du Gouvernment Belge, Sous La Direction De La Commission De La Belgica, Zoologie Ciripedia The collection of Cirripedia made during the cruise of the S. Y. Belgica contains three species: one species of the genus Balamrs, one of Elminius and one of Verruca. The Balanus and Elminius species were collected, during shore exploration, in the Magellan countries; the Verruca-species was taken with tangles (fauberts) at a depth of over 500 meters at about 70 lat. S. Whereas the first two are well known forms belonging to the South-American coastal fauna, the third is a true antarctic deep-sea species which has never been described before. The coastal waters of subantarctic South-America do not seem to be Very rich in species of Cirripedia. When describing the Cirripedia of the Hamburg Magellanic Collecting Voyage(), Weltner (in 1898) enumerated 17 species(2) as belonging to the subantarctic Fauna of South-America, but of these 9 only belong to the coastal fauna of that region, viz. I species of Elminius (E. Kingi, J. E.Gray), 5 species of Balanus (B. floscuius Darwin, Var. sordidus Darwin, B. improcicsus Darwin, B. Laevis Bruguiere, B. psitacfus (Molina) and B.tintinnabulum (L.), var. communis Darwin), 2 of chitkamalus (C.cirratus Darwin and C. scabrosus Darwin) and I Verruca (V.laevigata G. B. Sowerby); the other species are deepsea species or have as true pelagic animals a world-wide distribution. Nor is the number of known antarctic species of Cirripedia large, the only species so far as I know being the Scalpellum collected near the South Polar Circle, during the cruise of the English man of war Challenger, for which I proposed the name Scalpellum antarcticum(1).
