Overview

Distribution

Loppens (1906) vond deze soort wel eens op aangespoeld Flustra foliacea. In recentere jaren in België vaak op aangespoeld plastic, riemwiervoetjes en ook op de zeeden (Abietinaria abietina). Op aangespoelde riemwiervoetjes is het de dominante epifyt (De Blauwe, 2000c en 2005). Spoelde in Nederland aan langs de gehele kust op Flustra foliacea, Patella, wieren en kurk (Lacourt, 1978), geen recente waarnemingen.

The precise geographic range of Celleporella hyalina is uncertain, since some records have almost certainly been derived from misidentified Haplopoma graniferum. Celleporella hyalina is known for certain from the Arctic, extending south along European coasts as far as the Bay of Biscay and along the Pacific coast of America to California, the parts of Mexico affected by cold water upwelling and Chile.  It is also present on the eastern coast of Canada, Main and Massachusetts, but records from south of Cape Cod are likely to be incorrect. In Britain it has been recorded from the Menai Straits, Anglesey and North Wales.

Physical Description

Morphology

Celleporella hyalina is a common encrusting bryozoan that forms small sub-circular patch-like colonies, up to 20 cm in diameter. Often colonies are aggregated in flat clumps. Young colonies appear glassy at first, later turning opaque and ivory-white. Autozooids are elongate and oblong, more or less sausage-shaped. They lie in contact with one another and are approximately 0.37 by 0.17 mm.

Diagnostic Description

Description

Vormt korsten, vaak met dichte concentraties van zoïden en broedkamers. Zoïden 0,3-0,4 mm lang, worstvormig, eerst doorschijnend, later wit. Zoïden aanliggend met nauwe tussenruimten, die later verborgen worden door frontaal ontspringende vrouwelijke zoïden met broedkamers. Zoïden langwerpig, sterk convex en dwarsgestreept, vaak met een bultje net voor de opening. Opening rond met brede ondiepe sinus, zonder scharnierpunten. Buisvormige korte verbindingen tussen aangrenzende zoïden. Polypide met 12 tentakels. Vrouwelijke zoïden ontspringen op het frontaal oppervlak van gewone zoïden en vormen een tweede laag. Ze zijn kort en driehoekig en hebben een bolvormige broedkamer. De gemeenschappelijke opening van vrouwelijke zoïden en broedkamers is veel breder dan lang. Mannelijke zoïden als gewone zoïden maar met een kleinere opening. Geen avicularia, dit is het meest opvallende onderscheid met Chorizopora brongniartii. Broedkamers met frontale poriën, embryo’s lichtgeel. Ancestrula ovaal met een opening als de andere zoïden.

The species is mainly found on algae and may reach great abundance on Laminaria sp., especially Laminaria saccharina, in sheltered waters. It is also occasionally found on stones and shells. The species ranges from the intertidal down to 55 m.

Life History and Behavior

Life Cycle

Since the L. saccharina fronds that this bryozoan species colonises show seasonal availability in the UK, C. hyalina completes its life cycle quickly, with colonies living for less than a year, typically around 4 months. This may be extended to 18 months or more on artificial substrates.
