Abstract
    The organogenic sand of the Meloria Shoals hosts a rich meiobentic community. Particularly diverse appears the harpacticoid copepods assemblage that includes several undescribed species; among them, one belonging to the family Leptastacidae Lang, shows several unique plesiomorphic character states unreported in the family. This species is found all the year around reaching a peak of density, 2750 ind./m², during early spring.
