Study of type and other material using scanning electron microscopy has permitted the recognition of three new species and one new genus of Arctic and boreal calloporid anascans. Originally described from the Gulf of St Lawrence, Callopora whiteavesi is reassigned to Flustrellaria, a calloporid genus not previously reported extant. Material from north-east Greenland misidentified as C. whiteavesi is described as C. weslawski sp. nov. The new genus Septentriopora is introduced for calloporids lacking pore chambers, with a distolateral pair of small interzooidal avicularia that face proximally or proximolaterally, and a reduced ovicell. The type species of Septentriopora, Tegella nigrans, has frequently been misidentified. Many of the supposed records of this species belong to two other species, described here as Septentriopora karasi sp. nov. and S. denisenkoae sp. nov. The apparent ovicell in S. karasi is particularly unusual, being vestigial and kenozooid-like in morphology.
