[Limnoria japonica, hitherto known only from the Sea of Japan, is abundant under the thermocline in the arctic waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence (t. -1° to + 7° C). In both these regions arctic waters come close to richly forested coasts. This suggests a present or past arctic distribution of L. japonica, the first example of an arctic gribble. Pachyfolliculina gunneri (Ciliophora, Heterotricha) infests both gribble species. A broad lobate form of Miro f olliculina limnoriae infests L. lignorum; a sharply distinct, narrow, entire form probably belonging to the same species infests L. japonica. Taxonomic notes are given on the commensals Aspidoconcha limnoriae and Redekea sp. (Ostracoda) and Donsiella limnoriae (Copepoda, Harpacticoida), all new to the western Atlantic., Limnoria japonica, hitherto known only from the Sea of Japan, is abundant under the thermocline in the arctic waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence (t. -1° to + 7° C).
