Willems, K.A. (1981). Boreopontia heipi n. g., n. sp., an interstitial harpacticoid (Copepoda) from the Southern Bight of the North Sea. Biol. Jb. Dodonaea 49: 200-209

During a comprehensive investigation of the meiofauna of the Kwinte Bank, a sandbank in the Southern Bight of the North Sea, several specimens were collected of an interstitial harpacticoid of the family Cylindropsyllidae, representing a new genus. These specimens, referred to as Arenopontia sp. A by Willems et al. (in press), occurred in two stations with a pure, very well sorted coarse sand. The physical characteristics were: a median grain size: 402-517 m; sorting: 0.30-0.24 ; mud (<63 m) content: 0.05-0 % ; gravel (>2000 m) content: 1.13-0.24 %. The copepod association was dominated by Interleptomesochra eulittoralis Noodt, 1952). Leptastacus laticaudatus intermedius Kunz, 1938, Metacyclopina brevisetosa Herbst, 1974 and Ectinosoma reductum Bozic, 1954.
