The First Finding of Fistulobalanus kondakovi (Tarasov & Zevina, 1957) (Cirripedia: Thoracica) in the Russian Waters of the Sea of Japan

  • A. A. Kepel’


The barnacle Fistulobalanus kondakovi (Tarasov & Zevina, 1957) was found in the fouling community at the floating substrata in Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan. The possibility of introduction of this species to the Russian waters seems to be unlikely.
