dc.description.abstract ABSTRACT: Six species of Eutardigrada were found at Eniwetok Atoll, representing two families (Macrobiotidae and Milnesiidae) and three genera (Hypsibius, Macrobiotus, and Milnesium). Hypsibius (Calohypsibius) truncatus was found in sand samples from the thalassosupralittoral fringe at Runit and Eniwetok islets. H. (Isohypsibius) augusti was found in sand of the thalassosupralittoral fringe on Engebi Islet. Macrobiottts allani was found on Muti Islet; M. harmsUlorthi on Bogallua, Engebi, Roijoa, Eniwetok, Muti, and Igurin islets; M. richtersi on Japtan and Muti islets; all three species from tree-borne lichens and mosses. Milnesium tardigradum was commonly recovered from lichens and mosses on Muti and Igurin islets. The total number of individuals collected was small compared to collections in the temperate zone. No morphological anomalies were noted.
