Diagnosis Minute, burrowing female barnacles found primarily in calcareous substrates (corals, mollusks, thoracican shells, bryozoans etc.), with soft carapace, accompanied by dwarf males, all calcareous shell plates absent, a single pair of largely chitinous plates (opercular bars) guarding the aperture, terminal cirri reduced to 3-5 pairs, gathering in the posterior elongated portion of the thorax, single pair of cirri located at the side of the mouth, caudal appendages present or absent, abdomen reduced in adults. Acrothoracica is known from Lower Devonian or even Ordovician. [details]
