Abstract
    Five species of tardigrades, Batillipes mirus, B. bullacaudatus, Stygarctus bradgpus, S. granulatus, and Tanarctus arbospinosus nov. spec., are reported from the ocean-exposed intertidal zone of Bogue Bank, North Carolina. The new species is distinguished by a dorsal median cirrus and extremely long posterio-lateral spines with several secondary branches and many smaller tertiary projections. Intertidal distributions for each species are discussed and correlated with ecological measurements
