A new species, Cantellius alphonsei sp. nov., was found on Montipora venosa during the first cruise of the Interuniversity Institute of Eilat (IUI) to Ile d'Alphonse in the Seychelles. This species shows some similarities to C. septimus (Hiro, 1938), but the differences between C. septimus and the barnacles from Ile d'Alphonse are clear and consistent and justify the designation of these barnacles as a new species. Comparison of the description and illustrations of C. septimus in the literature suggests numerous differences and probably indicate the presence of more than one species within the barnacles regarded as "C. septimus". Acceptance of this assumption requires examination of material from a wide range of host corals and from different localities.

Une nouvelle espèce, Cantellius alphonsei sp. nov. a été trouvée sur Montipora venosa, lors de la première expédition de l'Institut Interuniversitaire d'Eilat (IUI) à l'île d'Alphonse, aux Seychelles. Cette espèce montre certaines ressemblances avec C. septimus (Hiro, 1938), mais les différences entre C. septimus et les cirripèdes récoltés à l'île d'Alphonse sont claires et significatives et justifient la désignation d'une espèce nouvelle. La comparaison avec la description et les illustrations de C. septimus fournies par la littérature suggère de nombreuses différences et indique la présence probable de plus d'une espèce parmi les cirripèdes identifiés comme "C. septimus". La confirmation de cette hypothèse nécessite l'examen de matériel provenant de nombreuses espèces de coraux-hôtes de localités différentes.
