Fenestrulina Asturiasensis sp. nov. (Bryozoa: Cheilostomida) from the Northern Coast of the Iberian Peninsula

  • Juan A. Alvarez (a1)

A new species of Fenestrulina Jullien, 1888, F. asturiasensis sp. nov., is described from the northern coast of the Iberian Peninsula. The main diagnostic features of this species are: four to five oral spines, a completely porous frontal wall and non-stellate frontal pores. These features have allowed the author to differentiate it from F. malusii (Audouin), another species of the genus Fenestrulina Jullien recorded in the same region.
