I am always amazed at the detail preserved on some of the bryozoans. This encrusting variety I believe is fistulipora.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

I can't resist picking those up. I've got a number of them on horn coral, brachs, and crinoids.

I think they're kind of fascinating!
