Pywackia Landing, 2001

Type species: Pywackia baileyi Landing, 2001

This genus includes the species:

The fossil Pywackia baileyi has been referred to Octorals. See Taylor, Berning & Wilson, 2013.
Restudy by Landing, Antcliffe & Brasier (2014) and Landing, Antcliffe, Brasier, & English (2014) has provided further evidence of its relationship as a bryozoan, and its distinction from the pennatulaceans, whose first record is from the Early Mesozoic. Pywackia is therefore restored as the earliest known bryozoan
