The Entoprocta are a small group of invertebrates with 200 described species, of which only two fall within the meiofaunal size class, though there are a number of other as yet undescribed candidate species of meiofaunal size. The two meiofaunal Entoprocta species described so far are: Loxosoma isolata described from a single specimen found in the Adriatic on the coast of Croacia; and Loxosomella vancouverensis described from three specimens found in the waters off Vancouver Island, Canada.
During January 2020 I found 46 specimens of a Loxosomella sp. in the Canal Tenglo, Puerto Montt, southern Chile. The samples were taken in soft sediments at a depth of 15-20m. The specimen in the photo has a larva attached (left hand side) below the mouth.
