Mitra, Robin, Barton, Andrew, Briggs, Steven and Orbell, John ORCID: 0000-0003-3485-5309 (2013) Identification of five bryozoan species in the Northern Mallee Pipeline, Australia. New Zealand Journal of Zoology, 40 (2). pp. 81-92. ISSN 0301-4223 (print), 1175-8821 (online)


Five species of freshwater bryozoans were identified in the Northern Mallee Pipeline (NMP) system in Victoria, Australia, from statoblast morphology using scanning electron microscopy. The five species were Plumatella emarginata, Fredericella australiensis, Plumatella reticulata, Rumarcanella minuta and Fredericella sultana. The latter three of these have never previously been reported as occurring on the Australian continent and samples have been preserved for safekeeping at Victoria University. The statoblasts were isolated from samples collected as intact colonies from filters and membranes at a number of different locations.
