Stenolaemate bryozoan fauna from the Lower Carboniferous (Mississippian) of southwestern Spain (Los Santos de Maimona Basin and Guadiato Area – Ossa Morena Zone) contains eight bryozoan species including three cystoporates, three trepostomes, and two cryptostomes. They range from Asbian (Upper Viséan) to Pendleian (Serpukhovian). This fauna displays distinct palaeobiogeographic relationships to the Mississippian of Europe, USA, Siberia, and Japan
