Bryozoa

Like to share an older photo I have taken from a pond. It is a Bryozoa individual with its ciliated feeding organ (lophophore).

This is for me a quite elegant organism you encountered and imaged. Great observation, thank you for this post. Charlie Guevara...I last encountered a bryozoan years ago...if you can believe the older books...these organism can grown into dense and heavy matts of bryozoans.

Thank you Charlie & Sunshine.

The photo is also some years old and I never had the luck to spot again. Somehow they are aliens with their tentacles :-) very fascinating of coarse.

In german language the trivialname is "Moostierchen" = moss animal. Guess because these organism can form such large colonies, looking then like moss matts?

Great catch and image! Like that you caught the Statoblasts as well.

Hallo Manfred, das freut mich zu hören, vielen Dank. Ich habe das Foto ja auch schon mal im Österreichischen Forum in die Galerie geladen ;-)
