ETYMOLOGY. — The species is named in honour of Juan Luis Suárez Andrés in acknowledgment of his studies of Palaeozoic bryozoans of Spain.

HOLOTYPE. — SMF 21.794 View Materials .  

PARATYPES. — SMF 21.795- SMF 21.801, TCD.60338, 60345.

TYPE LOCALITY. — Roque Redonde (Montagne Noire, southern France).

TYPE HORIZON. — Carboniferous, Mississippian (upper Visean).

DIAGNOSIS. — Thin to moderately thick encrusting colonies; apertures moderate in size, with large triangular lunaria; vesicles large, 6-11 surrounding each autozooecial aperture; maculae present, consisting of vesicular skeleton.

DESCRIPTION

Encrusting colony, 0.42-3.35 mm thick. Autozooecia growing from thin epitheca, bending in the early exozone to the colony surface. Basal diaphragms rare. Autozooecial apertures circular to oval. Lunaria well-developed, triangular; ends of lunaria not indenting autozooecia. Vesicles small to large, separating autozooecia in 1-2 rows, 6-11 surrounding each autozooecia aperture, with rounded roofs, polygonal in tangential section. Autozooecial walls granular prismatic, 0.005 -0.010 mm thick. Maculae consisting of vesicular skeleton, slightly elevated, 1.0- 1.2 mm in diameter, surrounded by larger autozooecia with lunaria directed to the centre of the macula.

COMPARISON

The present material is similar to Eridopora macrostoma Ulrich, 1882   from the Mississippian of USA and the British Isles. However, it differs in larger vesicles and in smaller apertures (average aperture width 0.32 mm vs 0.39 mm ( Bancroft 1986) to 0.41 mm (McKinney 1972) in E. macrostoma   ).
