Well-preserved bryozoans

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I find this tiny but well-preserved encrusting bryozoan sheet:

Same piece includes not so well-preserved branching bryozoans:

I understand species ID is likely impossible without more magnification, but I will be very thankful for any guesses about their order, family or genus.

 

Maastrichtian strata, Catalan Pyrenees.

Beautiful specimens. It always amazes me on how their anatomical features survive after all those millions of years. Thanks for starring these!
