Abstract

MOYANO G, Hugo I. On Xenoflustra Voigti n. gen., n. sp. (Bryozoa, Cheilostomatida, Buguloidea) a new Flustrine Bryozoan from the south western Atlantic ocean. Anales Instituto Patagonia (Chile) [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.2, pp. 67-71. ISSN 0718-686X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-686X2011000200005.

During the German LAMPOS cruises on April 2002, from the Arc of Scotia Archipelagos, two large (10-15 cm high) dark fustrine zoaria were collected. These turned out to be a new genus and a new species. Zoaria were slightly calcifed and had no avicularia. In its general structure this genus and species deserve a taxonomic place into the Bugulidean Cheilostomatida.

Keywords : Bryozoa; Bugoloidea; Flustra; Xenofustra voigti n. gen; n. sp; South western Atlantic ocean; Scotia Arc archipelagos.
