FLORENCE, Wayne K.. Some deep-water cheilostome Bryozoa from the south coast of South Africa. Afr. nat. history (Online) [online]. 2016, vol.12, pp.5-11. ISSN 2305-7963.

Twelve species of deep-water cheilostome Bryozoa are reported from an incidental deep-water collection from the south coast of South Africa. The collection represents nine families and ten genera. One species, Arthropoma lioneli sp. nov., is new to science. The results reinforce the need for targeted sampling of South Africa's poorly known deep-water benthic fauna to assist the assignment of offshore marine protected areas within its Exclusive Economic Zone. With the addition of the new species, the bryozoan fauna of South Africa comprises no fewer than 271 valid marine species.

Keywords : Bryozoa; Cheilostomata; new species; deep-water; benthic; taxonomy.
