Willems, K.A.; Claeys, D. (1982). Syrticola flandricus n.g., n.sp., a harpacticoid copepod from the Southern Bight of the North Sea. Crustaceana 43(1): 1-8
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 Ám; sorting: 0.24; mud<63Ám: 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.
