Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
Biology/Natural History: This bryozoan could easily be mistaken for a coral or hydrocoral. Many consider Heteropora pacifica and H. magna to be simply different forms of the same species. The tips of the branches evidently have live zooids, and the green color elsewhere may be due to unicelluler algae.
