Schizomavella linearis is an encrusting bryozoan that forms broad pale pink colonies. Colonies are initially composed of a single layer of autozooids, but later develop multiple layers. On occasion colonies produce lobed or folded sheets which are partly free of the substrate. Autozooids are rectangular or polygonal and convex. They are 0.4-0.7 by 0.3-0.4 mm and arranged in radiating linear series.
