Aurivillius, who at the same time founded the species Pollicipes signatus on an almost perfect specimen from the Lower Ludlow of Wisby in Sweden.
Aurivillius considered that Pollicipes signatus showed a closer approach to the Balanidae than any other of the Lepadidae, but he, too, in ignorance of the Devonian Protobalanus (Whitf.), discoursed needlessly about the gap in the distribution.
A striking instance of their abundance is cited by Aurivillius (1894) from a report by Captain G.
Aurivillius himself examined a humpback whale which had as many as fifty specimens of Coronula diadema on each side of its head.
