Disporella species c.

This specimen was dredged from Bass Strait, Australia. The lichenoporids are a group which needs major revision, so no specific identification has been attempted.

SEM image of the colony. A detailed image of part of the gonozooid, showing the ooeciostome. Two vertical rows of autozooids, and part of a third (right) are visible, with intervening alveoli.
