Abstract
Bryozoans were found attached to various natural and artificial substrates at 18 sites along the Iranian coast of the southern Caspian Sea. Two species of cheilostome bryozoans—Conopeum grimmi and Lapidosella ostroumovi—and species of ctenostomes—Amathia gracilis and Victorella pavida—are reported. Lapidosella ostroumovi is a record for the Caspian Sea.
