Micrognathozoa – a new microscopic animal group from Greenland


During a field course in arctic biology held on Disko Island, Greenland, a new animal was recorded from a cold spring near Isunngua on the eastern part of the island. The finders Prof. Dr. R. M. Kristensen and Dr. P. Funch named the animal Limnognathia maerski and placed it in a new group called Micrognathozoa.
