Abstract
    During a comprehensive study of the macro- and meiobenthos of the Kwintebank, a sandbank in the Southern Bight of the North Sea, eleven female specimens of a cylindropsyllid, belonging to a new genus, were collected from one of the stations sampled. The station's coordinates are 51°18'00''N 2°40'10''E.
    The sediment at this stations is a pure, very well sorted, coarse sand (median grain size: 517 µm; sorting: 0.24; mud<63µm: 0%) with a harpacticoid community similar to the Leptastacus laticaudatus-Paramesochra helgolandica- community from the "Open Sea" Zone described by Govaere et al. (1980). All specimens have been deposited at the "Koninklijk Belgisch Instituut voor Natuurwetenschappen", Vautierstraat 31, B-1040 Brussels, under no. I.G. 26228.
