Phidoloporidae

The Phidoloporidae is a family within the bryozoan order Cheilostomata. The colonies of many genera grow in an upright, reticulate branching manner, which gave rise to one colloquial name for this group as 'lace corals'. Zooids generally open on one side of the branches.

Classification

This family was previously commonly known as Reteporidae Smitt (1868), which is a junior synonym of Phidoloporidae Gabb & Horn (1862).
