Brief Summary

Read full entry
Remarks: Peduncles elongated as in most other neolepadine genera, evidently to keep the capitulum and cirral net in currents rather than to host chemoautotrophic endosymbionts. This is a different strategy than practiced by Ashinkailepas, N. zevinae, and of course the sessile vent barnacles, Neoverruca, Imbricaverruca, Neobrachylepas and Eochionelasmus.
