During an ecological investigation of the marine benthos from a sanddredged region in front of the Belgian coast (Kwintebank), several new and interesting nematode species were found. As the diversity in this habitat is very high and the density relatively low, there were only a few individuals per species. Therefore, further systematic and ecological elucidation of most of the material is postponed until other individuals are found in the surrounding regions of the North Sea (ongoing research). Most of the species are new for the Belgian fauna, as earlier research was restricted to the littoral zone (exception Jensen,1976). A paper concerning ecological data of the meiobenthos of this sandflat is in preparation.
