Abstract
    Harpacticoid copepods collected on the North Carolina continental shelf (to 100 m) during a shelf, slope and deep-sea study of the meiobenthos between North Carolina and Bermuda are presented. 111 spp were found, of which 11 are new spp and one a new sub-sp. 2 new gen are also described. The new forms are as follows: Ellucana secunda sp. n., Danielssenia eastwardae sp.n., Melima bisetosa sp.n., Schizopera carolinensis sp.n., S. anomala sp.n, Fearia prima gen. n., sp.n., Tetragoniceps bookhouti sp. n., Phyllopodopsyllus parafurciger carolinensis sp. n., Cylinula proxima gen. n., sp. n., Cletodes pseudodissimilis sp. n., Rhizothrix spinosa sp. n., and Tryphoema riedli sp. n. Ellucana is raised to the generic level to include E. longicauda Sewell and E. secunda sp. n. The 2 new gen, Fearia and Cylinula, appear to be intermediates between existing gen. Rhizothrix spinosa sp. n., R. pubescens Por and R. quadriseta Wells may also be considered as forms intermediate between the genera Rhizothrix and Tryphoema. LA: alpha En beta fr; beta en; beta de
