Type locality Lagoon at Collinson Point (= Simpson Cove), North Slope Borough, Alaska, USA, Beaufort Sea, Arctic Ocean (gazetteer estimate 69.97°, -144.91°), at shallow water. According to Chamberlin (1920: 19) "the locality label with the type, after its separation, was displaced. There seems little doubt, however, that it was from Collinson point, Alaska, probably Station 27o.'' Features of station 27o were described by Chamberlin (1920) as being "Pelagic under 5 inches [13 cm] of ice over 1 foot [0.3 m] of water. Lagoon at Collison point." Frank et al. (1985: 39) added: "The locality data given by Chamberlin appear to be a guess based on the fact that most of the other spionids he looked at in the Canadian Arctic Expedition material are from this one station.[details]
Type material Holotype deposited at the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Canada (CMNA NMCIC1900-8366).  [details]

From editor or global species database
Depth range Shallow water, 0.3 m depth.  [details]

Distribution Arctic Ocean: Alaska, Beaufort Sea, North Slope Borough, Collinson Point, Simpson Cove. Known only from the type locality.  [details]

Etymology The specific epithet boreus is a Latin adjective meaning 'northern', and probably refers to the northerly occurrence of the species.  [details]

Habitat Pelagic under 5 inches (13 cm) of ice over 1 foot (0.3 m) of water.  [details]

Synonymy Maciolek (1981: 229) revised the holotype of Anaspio boreus Chamberlin, 1920 (MCZ 2323), and found it to be a damaged specimen of Prionospio sp. which had lost the first pair of branchiae, as well as all the branchiae after the third pair. This way the species is an indeterminable Prionospio.  [details]
