Further Information

Lab. techniques To extract the perithecia from barnacle shells, dissect out the plates containing the perithecia (usually tergum and scutum) and then carefully break these up in a droplet of water under the dissecting microscope. Remove the fragments containing perithecia to a droplet of acid medium such as lactophenol or lactic acid which will dissolve the remaining calcium carbonate. Free the perithecia as they become exposed and remove the unwanted fragments of calcium carboante. Add a coverslip when the bubbling stops.
