Abstract:

Collections made during the International Bryozoology Association (IBA) post-conference fieldmeeting in September 1980 contained one undescribed species (Membraniporella gigas) and a number of species new for the British Coralline Crag [(Crisia eburnea (L.), Crisia aff. strangulata Buge, Tubulipora subdisticha Bige, Diplosolen obelium (Johnston), Rhamphonotus spelaeus Lagaaij, Scrupocellaria elliptica (Reuss), Scrupocellaria sp., Vittaticella elegans zangheri Neviani and V. cippolai Neviani)]. Particularly one locality, Crag Farm near Sudbourne, with crossbedded sediments deposited in a strong current environment, prooved to be rich in loose internodes of articulated catenicelliform and cellariform Bryozoa. These are species which due to the flexibility of their articulated colonies are adapted to live in a high energy environment.
