In July 1992 a population of the freshwater chaetonotid gastrotrichLepidodermella squamata was discovered in a protected beach on South Bass Island in Put-in-Bay, Lake Erie, OH. L. squamata is most commonly reported from vegetated substrates in freshwater habitats in Europe and North and South America. This is the first report from Lake Erie and from the lentic interstitial habitat in North America.
