On the evolutionary significance of the Paleocyphonautidae: how fossils and larvae impact evolutionary reconstructions


On the evolutionary significance of the Paleocyphonautidae: how fossils and larvae impact evolutionary reconstructions



Batalleria 2005(2005) 23 septiembre; 12: 149-154



ISSN/ISBN: 0214-7831

On the basis of new specimens and knowledge acquired in the last 25 years on developmental biology, we revisit the paleocyphonautid fossils. from the Upper Muschelkalk of Montral-Alcover, Spain. Recent studies on the morphology and physiology of the cyphonauta larvae are consistent with the notion originally proposed that Paleocyphonautidae may represent an adult stage of what we know today as cyphonaut larvae which may have been a basal group at the stem of the origin of the Bryozoa. The stratigraphical and paleoecological data is also consistent with this hypothesis.
