How gooseneck barnacles mate despite having ‘unusually short’ penises.

 Pollicipes_mating Barnacle mating adaptations have been fascinating biologists since Darwin. Most barnacles have a long penis, extending up to eight body lengths to reach nearby partners. Recent publications by Marjan Barazandeh and Richard Palmer (UAlberta) show gooseneck barnacles (Pollicipes polymerus), inhabiting the wave-swept intertidal habitat have evolved a number of novel mating strategies to compensate for ‘unusually short’ penises.
