Une nouvelle capture de la balane corallicole Megahalanus stultus (Darwin, 1854) dans le sud de Taiwan est décrite. L'espèce est présente sur le seul hôte Millepora platyphylla Hemprich & Ehrenberg, un hydrozoaire récifal. Elle diffère des pyrgomatides, les balanes corallicoles les plus communes, par sa taille beaucoup plus grande et son incapacité à creuser le squelette corallien. La découverte de M. stultus à Taiwan (Pacifique occidental) confirme la description originale de Darwin, selon laquelle l'espèce vit à la fois dans l'Atlantique (Floride et Caraïbes) et la Pacifique. Diagnose et illustrations des plaques operculaires et des appendices de l'espèce sont fournies.
