    Abstract

    The first cirripedes from the Portland and Purbeck groups of southern England are described, and referred to two new species, Loriolepas whytei sp. nov and Etcheslepas portlandensis sp. nov. They constitute the first records of cirripedes from the upper Tithonian (uppermost Jurassic) and Berriasian (lowermost Cretaceous) of western Europe. A new family, the Archaeolepadidae, is introduced for the extinct genera Archaeolepas and Loriolepas.
