A cystoporate bryozoan species from the Zechstein (Late Permian)

  • Andrej Ernst
Article

Abstract

The bryozoan speciesChoniopora radiata Schauroth, 1854 is recognised asFistulipora radiata (Schauroth, 1854). New material from the Lower Zechsteinkalk (Late Permian) of Rügen island and Thuringia allows a comprehensive description of its interior morphology. This is the first unequivocal record of a cystoporate bryozoan from the Zechstein.

Kurzfassung

Die BryozoenartChoniopora radiata Schauroth, 1854 wurde alsFistulipora radiata (Schauroth, 1854) bestimmt. Neue Proben aus dem Unteren Zechsteinkalk der Insel Rügen und aus Thüringen erlauben eine umfassende Beschreibung der inneren Morphologie dieser Art. Dies ist der erste Nachweis einer cystoporaten Bryozoe aus dem Zechstein.
