Overview

Comprehensive Description

Bryozoans in this family form encrusting colonies; the autozooids more or less separated except for linking tubular extensions from the proximal region; attached by rhizoids. Lateral walls lightly calcified; all the frontal surface membranous, incorporating an operculum; often with marginal spines. Pedunculate avicularia commonly present. Ovicell often absent.

Beaniidae

Beaniidae is a small bryozoan family in the cheilostomatan suborder Flustrina. Their zooids have a weak box-like shell of calcium carbonate as most Flustrina, and in this family typically arranged disjunctly, connected by small tubes, and often boat-shaped. One species, Amphibiobeania epiphylla, is the only known amphibious bryozoan known as of 2008/09.[1]

There are a mere 3 genera unequivocally assigned to this family:
