The lengths of chthamalid cyprids collected during August 1996 on six rocky shores in County Cork, Ireland are reported. The lengths showed a bimodal distribution. The smaller length mode corresponded well with the length range of laboratory-reared cyprids of Chthamalus montagui (Crustacea: Cirripedia), whilst the larger length mode was greater than the length range reported for laboratory-reared C. stellatus. Size may be a useful means to identify Chthamalus cyprids in field investigations.
