Brettiopsis gen.nov. is erected within the family Scrupariidae. Its affinities with the genera Brettia, Leiosalpinx, Brettiella, Bugulella and Scruparia are briefly discussed. Its type species, Brettia triplex Hastings, is redescribed on the basis of new material collected in the southern part of the Weddell Sea by the RV Polarsirkel. Bivalved brood chambers, previously unknown in this species, are described and illustrated.

Structure of bryozoan communities in an Antarctic glacial fjord (Admiralty Bay, South Shetlands)
TLDR
It was demonstrated that depth was important for the distribution of the bryozoans, with more than half of the recorded species found only below 70 m, and an influence of glacial disturbance was reflected in the dominance structure of colony growth-forms. Expand
Bryozoans of the Weddell Sea continental shelf, slope and abyss: did marine life colonize the Antarctic shelf from deep water, outlying islands or in situ refugia following glaciations?
Aim At the height of glaciations such as the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), benthic life on polar continental shelves was bulldozed off nearly all of the Antarctic shelf by grounded ice sheets. TheExpand
