Abstract: Bryozoan communities occurring on leaves and rhizomes of Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile, in seven meadows along the northern coast of Cyprus from 3 and 10 m depths were studied in July 1998. Forty-three epiphytic bryozoan species (5 Ctenostomata, 32 Cheilostomata, 6 Cyclostomata) were found. Crisia ramosa was recorded for the first time in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea while 6 species showed restricted biogeographical distribution. The epiphytic species are qualitatively richer on the rhizomes compared to those noted on leaves.
