Two New Balanid Barnacles (Cirripedia) From the Pinecrest Sand of Sarasota Florida

Norman E Weisbord


Two species of barnacles - Balanus sarasotensis Weisbord, 1971, and Balanus newburnensis, n. sp. - were collected by Harbans Puri in 1970 in what are locally known as the Warren Brothers Pits. These are situated 4.8 miles due east of Washington Boulevard, Sarasota in Sect. 13, T36S, R18E, Sarasota County. Florida. The approximate co-ordinates of the Pits are 27°22' 27"N, 82°27' 20"W. The section exposed within the pits was measured and described by Harbans Puri and that section (see Weisbord, 1972, p. 60), with the fossil identifications determined by Puri, is reproduced below.
