Cirripede remains from upper Cenomanian to lower Turonian strata at Kaňík-Na Vrších (Kolín area, Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, Czech Republic) are described; a new scalpelliform species, Myolepas reussi, is proposed. A palaeoecological analysis of the Na Vrších fauna shows that intertidalsubtidal conditions prevailed at the site during the early Late Cretaceous.
