Abstract A new acanthocladiid bryozoan genus from the Permian of the Glass Mountains of Texas, U.S.A., reveals a distinctive morphology and a growth pattern unique amongst members of the extinct stenolaemate Order Fenestrata. Adlatipora fossulata n. gen. n. sp. forms small pinnate expansions with moderately robust main stems and shorter laterally placed pinnae. Colonies developed from small basal discs that exhibit a unique multilayered skeletal structure, from which a circlet of first…

Skeletal resorption in bryozoans: occurrence, function and recognition
It is shown that resorption occurs routinely across a wide range of bryozoan clades, colony sizes, growth forms, ontogenetic stages, body wall types, skeletal ultrastructures and mineralogies, and scale of operation (zooidal or multizooidal).

Cassiavellia galtarae, New Species, New Genus: A New Permian Bivalve and its Significance for Pterioidean Systematics
An exceptionally well-preserved silicified bivalve from the Upper Permian of Texas is described and assigned to a new genus and species, Cassiavellia galtarae, which represents one of the earliest and best characterized unequivocal occurrences of the multivincular ligament in the superfamily Pterioidea.
The Sponge Family Guadalupiidae in the Texas Permian
The Guadalupiidae are unique among hypercalcified sponges in having a modular thalamid layer covered on the exhalant surface by a non-modular stromatoporoid-like layer (trabecularium).
Permian Gastropoda of the southwestern United States: Subulitacea
The composition of Permian members of the superfamily Subulitacea is considered, and 12 new species of Subulitacea are described from the silicified fauna of the Permian System of West Texas and New
New genera of Permian brachiopods from West Texas
Three new genera and three new species of brachiopods from West Texas are described, each of which reveals features hitherto unknown among their kind when they were dissolved from Permian limestones of the Sierra Diablo and Glass Mountains permian areas.
Middle Permian (Late Guadalupian) foraminifers from Dark Canyon, Guadalupe Mountains, New Mexico
Late Capitanian foraminifers are described from two cores taken by Amoco on the north side of the entrance of Dark Canyon. The Amoco #1 core (400ft) penetrates proximal forereef debris of the Tansill

Functional morphology and taxonomy of branch dimorphism in the Paleozoic bryozoan genus Rhabdomeson
Silicified maria of the widespread cylindrical genus Rhabdomeson have been discovered that bear conical branches traditionally assignable to Coeloconus, which suggests that this mode of increase may be more important than realized in bryozoans.
