Stomach contents of Discorsopagurus contained suspended and settled detritus, zooplankton, and algae (Caine 1980). Discorsopagurus is thus a generalist and an opportunistic feeder (Gherardi 1994). FUTURE DIRECTIONS In thoracican barnacles, research on the ecology, behavior, and larval ecology of coral- and sponge-associated barnacles is still in the infant stage.

Shells of intertidal acorn barnacles are volcano-shaped, a form that both optimizes surface contact relative to size and reduces the drag forces of strong waves. Multitubiferous shells are found in species of Tetraclita, which may also represent an adaptation to such high-energy intertidal shores. Species of Tetraclitella living on shaded rocks or on the underside of large boulders can have depressed shells that facilitate living in such confined habitats (Fig. 2B). Different from Tetraclita, Tetraclitella exhibit diametric growth of the radii in the shell (Ross 1969a).
