Unpublished data on 37 bryozoan species collected in different parts of the Portuguese coast are provided. 21 of them are reported from Portugal for the first time. Among them, Sessibugula barrosoi, Smittina jordii and Schizomavella
linearis profunda are reported for the first time since their original descriptions. Anguinella palmata was never reported before in Iberian waters, including both Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts. The record of Celleporella angusta extends the species’ known southern limit of distribution. Another 12 species were previously reported only once in Portugal, sometimes with some doubts. In addition, the ovicell of Crepis longipes and the ancestrula of Herentia thalassae are here described for the first time. The presence in Smittina affinis of a denticulate distal border in the primary orifice and a welldeveloped peristome are reported. Two species of the genera Hincksina and Hemicyclopora, left in open nomenclature, are described.
