Sumario: Sixty-one species of bryozoans have been reported in the literature from Costa Rica and are distributed as follows: Caribbean: 13 species in 11 genera, 10 families, 1 order, and 1 class; Pacific: 49 species in 41 genera, 31 families, 3 orders, and 2 classes. One species is present in both coasts. The 61 species are in 49 genera, 36 families, and 3 orders in 2 classes. Only one site in the Caribbean (Portete) has been sampled, and from the Pacific most of the collections were carried out along the shore or by dredging in shallow waters. More studies are needed to obtain a more complete picture of the diversity and ecology of bryozoans in Costa Rica and Central America.
