Bryozoans/sponge ?


Recommended Posts


I found this encrusted Shell Spondylus spinosus,8*6 cm today.

Cretaceous ,Campan ,Ivö ,Sweden.

I can´t figure out if it´s Bryozoa or Sponge or maybe both.

Thanks for answering

The globular features seem very sponge-like to me, especially the way they are joined by tendrils.

The roundish sponges reminds me of these sponges

There appears to be predator markings made by

worms and or boring sponges.
