Abstract: The cheilostome Bryozoa fauna of 65 marine fouling panels exposed
at Yokosuka, Maizuru, and Sasebo, Japan, in 1966 and 1967 was studied. Nineteen
species were recorded, described and photographed. Based on faunal variations between
the sites, a list of the principal species diagnostic of each was prepared. The
panels at the Yokosuka site were characterized by large quantities of Watersipora
subovoidea, Bugula neritina, and B. californica; the Maizuru site by Bugula neritina
and Electra tenella; and the Sasebo site by Schizoporella unicornis and Celleporaria
aperta.
Faunal resemblance between the three stations on the basis of the recorded
Bryozoa occurrence indicate Maizuru and Sasebo were most similar in Bryozoa
composition and Sasebo and Yokosuka the least similar of the three sites.
