DNA barcoding of Bryozoa or “moss animals” has hardly advanced and lacks reference sequences for correct species identification. To date only a small number of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences from 82 bryozoan species have been deposited in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) GenBank and Barcode of Life Data Systems (BOLD). We here report COI data from 53 individual samples of 29 bryozoan species collected from Korean seawater. To our knowledge this is the… 
Identifying monophyletic groups within Bugula sensu lato (Bryozoa, Buguloidea)
The results suggest that the genus Bugula is composed of four clades, for which the authors provide diagnoses: Bugula sensu stricto (30 species), Bugulina (24 species), Crisularia (23 species) and the monotypic Virididentula gen. n.
Molecular variability in the Celleporella hyalina (Bryozoa; Cheilostomata) species complex: evidence for cryptic speciation from complete mitochondrial genomes
Two complete mitochondrial genomes of the Celleporella hyalina species complex from Wales, UK and Norway are sequenced to determine genetic divergence at the complete mt genome level, and new molecular markers for examining the interrelationships amongst the major lineages are designed.
Cryptic species in the cosmopolitan Bugula neritina complex (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata)
Bayesian species delimitation analysis of a data set composed of two mitochondrial (COI and large ribosomal RNA subunit [16S]) and two nuclear genes demonstrated that Types S, D and N correspond to three biological species, which indicates that the Type N may also have been introduced widely.
Ecology of cryptic invasions: latitudinal segregation among Watersipora (Bryozoa) species
The distribution of Watersipora-complex lineages on different coastlines is shown to be temperature correlated, and pre-exisitng temperature-based adaptations may play a key role in determining invasion patterns.
Complete mitochondrial genome of the freshwater bryozoan Pectinatella magnifica (Phylactolaemata: Plumatellida) assembled from next-generation sequencing data
Results of maximum likelihood analysis showed that this species clustered with other species of the phylum Bryozoa, and no acceleration of the mitochondrial DNA evolution of P. magnifica was revealed.
Statoblast ultrastructure and genetic identity of Pectinatella magnifica population, based on COI gene, from three different watersheds in Korea
The results of this molecular analysis of P. magnifica in Korea using a barcode gene provide a means to reliably classify this species, which has distinct taxonomic features, including a couple of white spots on the lophophora, a red pigmented mouth, and multiple statoblasts bearing hooked spines.
Resurrection of the genus Licornia for Scrupocellaria jolloisii (Bryozoa) and related species, with documentation of L. jolloisii as a non-indigenous species in the western Atlantic
This work further analyse S. jolloisii and its related species, resurrecting an earlier genus name, Licornia van Beneden, 1850 for Licornia jollisii, and nine relatives, L. annectens, L., cervicornis, L, diadema, ferox, longispinosa, macropora, and L. prolata.
Scrupocellaria (Bryozoa: Cheilostomata) from the Queensland coast, with the description of three new species
Among the Scrupocellaria species previously reported from Queensland, three are here redescribed — S. cervicornis, S. curvata and S. diadema — and the need for the re-examination of specimens assigned to this genus is highlighted.


Invasion patterns inferred from cytochrome oxidase I sequences in three bryozoans, Bugula neritina, Watersipora subtorquata, and Watersipora arcuata
In each species, identical haplotypes were identified on separate coastlines providing evidence of widespread, rather than genetically independent, introductions, and the major contrast in nucleotide diversity suggests that different propagule-source models explain introductions.
Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography and mating compatibility reveal marked genetic structuring and speciation in the NE Atlantic bryozoan Celleporella hyalina
It is found that haplotype diversity is geographically variable and there is a strong population structure, with significant isolation by distance in NE Atlantic C. hyalina, and likely differences between terrestrial and marine system responses to Pleistocene glacial cycles are discussed.
DNA primers for amplification of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I from diverse metazoan invertebrates.
We describe "universal" DNA primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a 710-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) from 11 invertebrate phyla:
First Record of the Genus Pagurixus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura: Paguridae) from Hyung-ge Island, Southern Korea
A pagurid hermit crab, Pagurixus patiae collected from Hyung-ge Island, Busan, southern Korea is newly recorded into the Korean fauna. Pagurixus patiae is the only species of the genus recorded in
First Record of the Little-known Genus Hellwigia (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Campopleginae) from Korea
We report on the discovery of Hellwigia obscura Gravenhorst, 1823, a species new to Korea. A description based on both sexes with photographs and a key to the world Hellwigia species are provided.
