Undetermined encrusting bryozoans

Many encrusting bryozoans are not readily identified without keys and a powerful magnifying glass or dissecting microscope. Colonies are usually thin and consist of countless minute “boxes” abutting each other. The following selection of unidentified encrusting bryozoans found during the preparation of this book demonstrates that although some species are difficult to identify, their diversity can still be enjoyed and appreciated.
