Ernst, Andrej; Buttler, Caroline


Ten bryozoan species belonging to the Order Cystoporata are described from the Lower Devonian of the Cantabrian Mountains, NW Spain. Three genera, with one species respectively, are new: Physallidopora cantabrica gen. nov. sp. nov., Dolichozoon ramosum gen. nov. sp. nov. and Hiberotrypa dubia gen. nov. sp. nov. Two additional species are new: Fistuliporidra triangulata sp. nov. and Fistuliporidra hibera sp. nov. The studied fauna shows palaeobiogeographic relations to the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and North America.
