Abstract


Twenty-one species of cyclostome bryozoans are described from the coast of Qingdao (South Yellow Sea, China), belonging to 11 genera (Filicrisia, Crisia, Tubulipora, Exidmonea, Idmidronea, Qingdaoella n. gen., Nevianipora, Hemipustulopora, Microeciella, Patinella and Disporella). One genus (Qingdaoella n. gen.) and 10 species are new, while an additional species is reported for the first time from China. The most similar bryozoan assemblages to the Chinese cyclostomes described here are reported from the Sea of Japan and the western Pacific.
