Upper Cretaceous Bryozoa from Need's Camp, South Africa
Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research
The bryozoan fauna from the Upper Cretaceous limestones of the lower quarry at Need's Camp, South Africa is revised. Eighteen cyclostomatous species are identified, of which twelve are new: Desmeplagioecia primitiva, Diastopora solida, Pustulopora minuta, Spiropora irregularis, Clausa crassa, Foliopora expansa, ldmidronea robusta, ldmidronea africana, ldmidronea capensis, ldmidronea langi, ldmonea compressa, and Multicavea rotunda. The fauna seems to indicate a shallow-water, strongly agitated environment and differs in composition from the probably contemporaneous fauna from Madagascar. There is a suggestion that distinct biogeographical provinces may be represented.
