I think this is a clam being encrusted entirely with bryozoans. This is an amazing
specimen that bears some resemblance to a heart. (next 4 pics)
The picture above is a close-up of the surface of this encrusted clam.
We found bryozoans encrusting almost every form of life. The next two pictures
show Bryozoans encrusting Brachiopods.
The above pic shows the variety and quantity of bryozoans found.
