Beaniidae is a small bryozoan family in the cheilostomatan suborder Flustrina. Their zooids have a weak box-like shell of calcium carbonate as most Flustrina, and in this family typically arranged disjunctly, connected by small tubes, and often boat-shaped. One species, Amphibiobeania epiphylla, is the only known amphibious bryozoan known as of 2008/09.
There are a mere 3 genera unequivocally assigned to this family:
- Amphibiobeania Metcalfe, Gordon & Hayward, 2007
- Beania Johnston, 1840 (including Dimorphozoum)
- Stolonella Hincks, 1883
- Metcalfe et al. (2007)
