From editor or global species database
Additional information  Buckeridge and Newman (2006) revised Thoracica and divided Thoracica into orders Cyprilepadiformes (fossil only), Ibliformes, Lepadiformes, Scalpelliformes and Sessilia (non-stalked barnacles), but did not base this division by morphological apomorphies or molecular phylogenetic data (because this was not then available). Based on this we follow Gale (2015) in dividing the Thoracica into Phosphatothoracica and Thoracicalcarea. The Thoracicalcarea comprise all extant Thoracica except the Ibliformes and is monophyletic in all molecularly based analyses.  [details]

Diagnosis Diagnosis. Thoracica in which the shell plates are composed
of calcite. [details]
