Statoblast Stat"o*blast (st[a^]t"[-o]*bl[a^]st), n. [Gr. stato`s standing (i. e., remaining) + -blast.] (Zo["o]l.) One of a peculiar kind of internal buds, or germs, produced in the interior of certain Bryozoa and sponges, especially in the fresh-water species; -- also called {winter buds}. [1913 Webster]

Note: They are protected by a firm covering, and are usually destined to perpetuate the species during the winter season. They burst open and develop in the spring. In some fresh-water sponges they serve to preserve the species during the dry season. See Illust. under {Phylactol[ae]mata}. [1913 Webster]
