Eocene bryozoa from the McBean Formation in Georgia
Micropaleontology (1962) 8 (3): 323-336


Nineteen species of cheilostome bryozoans are herein described or listed from the McBean Formation of the northeastern Georgia coastal plain. Of these, 8 are described as new, and 8 are redescribed. The McBean fauna shows greatest resemblance to the Castle Hayne bryozoans (upper Eocene) of North Carolina, which include 6 of the McBean species. The McBean is probably older than the Castle Hayne, but not as old as middle Eocene.
