Description

Here's a large 5" diameter patch of Membranipora villosa (Kelp-encrusting Bryozoan) growing on a kelp frond. Some fronds are covered in dozens of these bryozoans.

Typically about 0.5 millimetres (0.020 in) long, they are filter feeders that sieve food particles out of the water using a retractable lophophore, a "crown" of tentacles lined with cilia. Most marine species live in tropical waters, but a few occur in oceanic trenches, and others are found in polar waters. One class lives only in a variety...
