Abstract

A new planktonic pennate diatom species, Stauroneis guslyakovii Genkal et Yarushina, sp. nov., was described from the Yamal and Tazovsky peninsulas using a scanning electron microscope. The new species is morphologically similar to S. gracilior and S. francisci-josefi, but differs from them in number of striae and areolae in 10 μm, length and width of valve.


Key words: Bacillariophyta, morphology, phytoplankton, scanning electron microscopy, Stauroneis, Tazovsky Peninsula, Yamal Peninsula
