Abstract
    Studies of the horizontal distribution of the Plathelminthes in sandy beaches have up to now mainly been carried out on the German island of Sylt where the beaches consist of a steep "Prallhang" and a flat wadden area. Beaches of the Belgian coast are very flat, only gently sloping and with a different sediment compared to the Sylt beaches. This study reports on the distribution of the turbellarians in such a flat beach; the discussion is mainly focussed on the comparison with the results of the German investigators.
