Abstract
    The present paper deals with bryozoans in three of the four infraorders of the large suborder Ascophorina (order Cheilostomatida) from MUSORSTOM cruises along the northern Norfolk Ridge and around New Caledonia (including five species from the MUSORSTOM 3 cruise to the Philippines included with the other material). A total of 44 species is recorded (Cribriomorpha: 35 species; Hippothoomorpha: 1 species; Umbonulomorpha: 8 species) of which 22 species are new. A noteworthy feature in New Caledonian waters is the remarkable diversity of two families - the Petalostegidae and Bifaxariidae. Proportionally more species of these families are found here than anywhere else in the world.
