Name

edit
  • Pachydiadema Withers, 1935: 389
    • Considered by Buckeridge, 1995: 261, to not bear convincing features of balanomorphs. Likely is either brachylepadomorph or unusual scalpellomorph. Most other authors consider it as Balanomorpha? incertae sedis (Gale & Sørensen, 2014)
    • Original status: valid subgenus
    • Type species: Catophragmus (Pachydiadema) cretaceum Withers, 1935: 390, by original designation
    • ZooBank: 573B095C-71B0-439A-AA16-2EF81AE9CB22
