The devonian fenestrate bryozoan utropora

The devonian fenestrate bryozoan utropora

Journal of Paleontology 54(1): 241-252

U. nobilis (Pocta) is a fenestrate bryozoan genus characterized by large meshwork and 2 rows of very large uniquely shaped zooecia/branch. The zooecia have elongate distal tubes that extend along the proximal portion of the lateral side of the next-distal zooecium in the row before bending toward the frontal surface. The lateral placement of apertures is interpreted as related to filling the space above the wide fenestrules with a tentacular filtration net that actively pumped water through the fenestrules.
