Abstract


The assemblage of the balanid cirripedes from the Korytnica Basin (Middle Miocene; Holy Cross Mountains, Central Poland) comprises the representatives of the two families, Archaebalanidae and Balanidae. The first is represented by Solidobalanus (Solidobalanus) mylensis (SEGUENZA), Solidobalanus (Hesperibalanus) sp.div., and Actinobalanus actinomorphus (MORONI). The family Balanidae is represented by the six species: Balanus (Balanus) concavus BRONN, Balanus (Balanus) amphitrite DARWIN, Balanus (Balanus) trigonus DARWIN, Balanus (Megabalanus) tintinnabulum LINNAEUS, Balanus (Megabalanus) tulipiformis ELLIS, and Balanus sp. The whole assemblage shows the greatest analogy to that of the Neogene of Italy.
