Three New Kinorhynchs from the North Carolina Coast
Abstract:Three new kinorhynchs, one cyclorhagid, Echinoderes bookhouti, n. sp., and two homalorhagids, Pycnophyes beaufortensis, n. sp., and Trachydemus langi, n. sp., are described from Beaufort, North Carolina. The geographical range of the three species appears to be restricted to the southeastern U.S. coast with the known limits no farther southward than Marineland, Florida. A discussion of the kinorhynch fauna known to the U.S. coasts and collecting methods is included.
