Abstract: Two SPECIES of marine tardigrades have been
reported from the Pacific coast of North America.
Schuster and Grigarick (1965) studied
Echiniscoides sigismundi Schultze, 1865, from
algae and barnacles. This species is thought to
occur along much of the west coast. Styraconyx
sargassi Thulin, 1942, was reported as Bathyechiniscus
tetronyx Steiner, 1926, from washings
of Dictyota sp. by Mathews (1938). Although
marine tardigrades are often found in association
with algae and a variety of animals, they
are most abundant in the interstitial spaces of
sandy beaches. The apparently rich interstitial
fauna of the west coast has not as yet been
investigated.
