For many species of bryozoans, sperm enter the maternal zooid via an opening at the base of the lophophore--a supraneural pore or the intertentacular organ (ITO) depending on the species (Temkin, 1994).
While in the lophophore, spermatozeugmata may move headfirst into maternal individuals through the intertentacular organ (ITO).
Once within the lophophore region they gain access to maternal zooids through specialized intertentacular organs of the lophophore, and subsequently effect internal fertilization of eggs within maternal zooids (Temkin, 1994).
