Title: Ecology and Taxonomy of an Epizooic Diatom

Abstract: An epizooic diatom, Sameioneis carinaes gen. et sp. nov., has been
found in the inland marine waters of northwestern Washington. It was found attached
only to the copepod Corycaeus affinis. Attachment of the diatom occurs mainly
on the second antennae and thoracic segments of male animals, and on the carapace
and thoracic segments of females, which are the areas of contact during copulatory
and noncopulatory clasping. It is probable that the diatoms are transferred to other
animals during these activities.
