Comments"Lake Springfield South of Springfield Missouri. This is a Lake that is formed by damming the James River for a cooling source for the power plant. The size of the Bryozoans was about 18" in diameter and setting about 10 below the surface of the water and attached to some twigs and minor limbs. I have noticed a smaller one earlier (around August) in another part of the lake."
