Four pointed side plates that look like a claw or finger nail at the end of a stalk. Stalk brown and covered with hard brown hairs. Up to 3 cm long, 5 mm wide.
These are the only stalked barnacle living permanently on Victorian rocky shores. Other stalked barnacles (goose barnacles) are seen washed-up attached to driftwood, and are not covered with hair.
