Right in the center is Balanus glandula. The height above low tide and the diamond shape opening are the diagnostic characters. There is a Nucella snail hidden in the crevice and another genus of barnacle in the upper left.

You're most likely correct, but without seeing the terga and scuta, I'd only be willing to go to genus.
