METRARABDOTOS AND RELATED GENERA (BRYOZOA: CHEILOSTOMATA) IN THE LATE PALEOGENE AND NEOGENE OF TROPICAL AMERICA
Abstract Metrarabdotos Canu, 1914 and the related genera Escharoides Milne Edwards, 1836b, Adeonellopsis MacGillivray, 1886, and Reptadeonella Busk, 1884 were key taxa in the decline of Bryozoa with… Expand
NEOGENE CUPULADRIIDAE OF TROPICAL AMERICA. I: TAXONOMY OF RECENT CUPULADRIA FROM OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA
Abstract We used up to 28 morphological characters to discriminate and describe species of the genus Cupuladria based on entire colony specimens collected from both coasts of the Isthmus of Panama.… Expand
Neogene Cupuladriidae of Tropical America. II: Taxonomy of Recent Discoporella from Opposite Sides of the Isthmus of Panama
Abstract We used up to 30 morphological characters to discriminate and describe species of the genus Discoporella based on complete colony specimens collected from both coasts of the Isthmus of… Expand
Bryodiversity in the tropics: taxonomy of Microporella species (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata) with personate maternal zooids from Indian Ocean, Red Sea and southeast Mediterranean
The particularly speciose cheilostomate genus Microporella includes taxa whose maternal zooids and associated ovicells present a personate structure, i.e. a particularly developed peristome. Six… Expand
MORPHOLOGICAL DIFFERENTIATION OF AVICULARIA AND THE PROLIFERATION OF SPECIES IN MID-CRETACEOUS WILBERTOPORA CHEETHAM, 1954 (BRYOZOA: CHEILOSTOMATA)
Abstract Discovery of avicularium-like polymorphs in Wilbertopora mutabilis Cheetham, 1954 has provided not only a new opportunity for revising the genus Wilbertopora Cheetham, 1954, but also a more… Expand
EVOLUTIONARY SIGNIFICANCE OF SEXUAL AND ASEXUAL MODES OF PROPAGATION IN NEOGENE SPECIES OF THE BRYOZOAN METRARABDOTOS IN TROPICAL AMERICA
Abstract Three new Miocene-Pliocene species of the cheilostome bryozoan Metrarabdotos from Venezuela are atypical in showing significant evidence that as many as half the colonies originated… Expand
Scorpiodinipora costulata (Canu & Bassler, 1929) (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata), a taxonomic and biogeographic dilemma: complex of cryptic species or human-mediated cosmopolitan colonizer?
ABSTRACT Despite implausible cosmopolitanism, the species Scorpiodinipora costulata (Canu & Bassler, 1929) has been attributed with reservations to small encrusting colonies with similar… Expand
Cribrimorph and Other Cauloramphus Species (Bryozoa: Cheilostomata) from the Northwestern Pacific
We provide original descriptions for nine new species in the cheilostome bryozoan genus Cauloramphus (C. gracilis, C. Ordinarius, C. amphidisjunctus, C. cheliferoides, C. oshurkovi, C. infensus, C.… Expand
Taxonomy of recent Adeonidae (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata) from Brazil, with the description of four new species.
Here we present the taxonomy of the cheilostome genera Adeonellopsis MacGillivray, 1886 and Reptadeonella Busk, 1884 in Brazil. Of the six species previously reported in Brazilian waters, we include… Expand
Revision of the Recent species of Exechonella Canu & Bassler in Duvergier, 1924 and Actisecos Canu & Bassler, 1927 (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata): systematics, biogeography and evolutionary trends in…
The present study describes species of Exechonella and Actisecos discovered through the examination of recent collections from the Red Sea, coast of Oman and Maldive Islands (Indian Ocean) and the… Expand
