Adult and larval forms of Chthamalus dalli and Chthamalus fissus are compared and distinguishing characteristics described. Adult forms of these species differ in malate dehydrogenase enzyme allozymes, in the setae of the second cirrus, and in shell characteristics. Larval forms are morphologically identical, although larvae cultured from adults collected at Monterey Bay differ in size at naupliar stages I-III and at the cyprid stage.
