Abstract

Previous record of Xenobalanus globicipitis in Indian Ocean is from the South African coast (Natal and Saldhana Bay). A specimen of X. globicipitis, 22.5 mm in length, was found attached to the fluke of a finless black porpoise (Neomeris phocoenoides) caught oflE Karwar by R. V. Varuna, and this finding extends considerably the known range of distribution of this species.
