Membranipora de Blainville, 1830

Type species: Flustra membranacea Linnaeus, 1767

The genus (and family) has been used for many forms of encrusting anascans with little or no frontal calcification. The modern definition includes development of a colony from a twinned ancestrula. Information on ancestrula is not available for many Recent (and most fossil) species. These species are included in the list below until more information makes a better definition possible. It is likely that a residue of described species which are inadequately known will continue to be a problem. A large number of fossil species have been described; ultimately, these will be added to this page, but it is expected that few will be related to the Recent genus.

Levinsen (1909) suggested the name Membraniporina for species without characters such as ovicells or avicularia which would permit assignment to other genera. (ie Membranipora sensu lato). The proposal did not specify a type species, and cannot be considered a formal definition. The informal "Membranipora" is used for these species.

This genus includes the species:

  1. Membranipora inornata
  2. Hincks, 1881 Recent Australia Bass Strait WoRMS 469977
  3. Membranipora membranacea
  4. (Linnaeus, 1767) Recent Cosmopolitan WoRMS 111411

    The following list of species includes those which have been assigned to Membranipora but have not been revised recently. Many will not be related to Membranipora sensu stricto, but their relationships will be difficult to define better.
