The present note contains first records of Lepas anatifera (on objects washed ashore) and L. australis (on a ship's hull) from Amsterdam Island, 37°50'S and 77°36'E, as well as a first record of the latter (on kelp roots and in birds stomach contents) from Possession Island, 46° 25'S and 51°52'E, and East Island (Crozet Islands). Descriptions of the specimens and notes on geographical distribution, including comments on transportation by kelp, pumice, penguins and seals, are given. It is suggested, on the basis of the few differences between the two species and of their geographical distribution, that Lepas australis may be a poorly calcified southern subspecies of Lepas anatifera. So, L. australis is tentatively renamed L. anati f era australis Darwin, 1851.
