Contributions toward a revision of the genus teuchopora bryozoa cheilostomata

Contributions toward a revision of the genus teuchopora bryozoa cheilostomata

Bollettino della Societa Paleontologica Italiana 16(1): 69-78

In the last century Neviani erected the monospecific genus Teuchopora for the species Alecto castrocarensis, occurring in the Pliocene Spungone formation near Castrocaro (Northern Appennines, Italy). Harmer in 1957 assigned all the Recent species of Coleopora Canu and Bassler to Teuchopora, quoting the 2 genera to be synonyms. The type specimens of A. castrocarensis were reexamined in order to assess the exact relationships between the 2 taxa. In this respect a set of distinctive morphological attributes, as the uni-pluriserial budding pattern, the evenly perforated frontal walls, the interzoidal communication organs in the lateral walls, suggest the Teuchopora to represent an independent taxonomic unit, to be separated from Coleopora. Moreover the available evidences are consistent with the view that the genus is cryptocystidean in development. Brief sedimentological considerations on Spungone formation are attempted in order to reconstruct the ancient environment of Teuchopora castrocarensis.
