Bryozoa of the Southeast Coast of the United States: Bugulidae and Beaniidae (Cheilostomata: Anasca)
Abstract:The species of Bugula, Caulibugula, and Beania which occur from Cape Hatteras to Florida are described and figured. The genus Bugula includes B. neritina, B. turrita, B. fulva, B. stolonifera, B. microoecia, B. rylandi sp. n., B. marcusi sp. n., and B. grayi sp. n. Records of Bugula avicularia and B. californica from the western Atlantic are erroneous or dubious. Bugula fulva and B. stolonifera are recognized for the first time in the American fauna. The northern range limit of Bugula microoecia is extended from the Gulf of Mexico to North Carolina. The genus Caulibugula is represented by C. dendrograpta (Waters) and C. pearsei sp. n. Caulibugula armata Verrill is redefined. Both Beania hirtissima and B. intermedia are now known to occur as far north as Cape Lookout, N. C.
