Intertidal Bryozoa (Cheilostomata) of Ketchikan, Alaska
The number of species per site was within the range of values previously observed in a more extensive study at Kodiak, Alaska, suggesting both similar intertidal species richness at the two localities, and that sampling of other interTidal sites at Ketchikan would detect additional species.
Diversity and taxonomy of intertidal Bryozoa (Cheilostomata) at Akkeshi Bay, Hokkaido, Japan
The overall species richness of intertidal cheilostomes was two‐thirds that documented intertidally in a comparable study at Kodiak, Alaska, a locality 15° higher in latitude, and the lower richness at Akkeshi to differences in the nearshore marine environment between the two localities is attributed.
A New Cheilostome Bryozoan with Gigantic Zooids from the North-West Pacific
Comparative data on similar sheet-like cheilostomes gathered from the literature shows that the new species represents a conspicuous outlier in size, with the surface area of the zooid being approximately twice that of the next largest species.

The anatomical structure of internal sacs for embryonic incubation was studied using SEM and light microscopy in three cheilostome bryozoans and the hypothesis that internal brooding evolved prior to incubation in ovicells is rejected is rejected.
Deep-water Bryozoa from the Kuril Basin, Sea of Okhotsk
Bryozoa (Cyclostomata and Ctenostomata) from polymetallic nodules in the Russian exploration area, Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone, eastern Pacific Ocean-taxon novelty and implications of mining.
Of the species reported here, only one has previously been found outside the exploration area, highlighting both the limited knowledge the authors have of bryozoans in the deep Pacific and/or a fauna that is largely endemic to the nodule environment.
Triticella minini - a new ctenostome bryozoan from the abyssal plain adjacent to the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench
Systematics and phylogeny of the cheilostome bryozoan Doryporella
The four nominal species of the Arctic‐Boreal anascan bryozoan Doryporella Norman are revised and the reticulate frontal wall is inferred to have evolved twice and D. reticulata is removed to Dory porellina gen. n.
Rocky-intertidal cheilostome bryozoans from the vicinity of the Sesoko Biological Station, west-central Okinawa, Japan
Given that many species were rare or uncommon in the study area and/or patchily distributed among the three sites, further sampling at additional intertidal sites in the Sesoko area will likely detect higher total local richness than the 52 species found.
Cribrimorph and Other Cauloramphus Species (Bryozoa: Cheilostomata) from the Northwestern Pacific
High levels of apparent endemism in two unrelated bryozoan genera (Cauloramphus and Monoporella), and geographical population differentiation in C. ascofer indicating ongoing allopatric speciation, suggest high speciation rates for deep benthic bryozoans in the western Aleutians.
