This paper describes finding of 3 specimens of Skenea profunda (Friele, 1879) in the Arctic Basin from a depth of 3700-3800 The species had been previously reliably known only from the bathyal part of the North Atlantic and is confined to communities of sunken wood. This is the second finding of a taxon obligate for such habitats in the Arctic Ocean and confirms the assumption that there is a fauna associated with wood falls on the path of the Transpolar Drift Flow in the Central Arctic.
