The stomatocyst 53 Duff et Smol 1991 was recorded in Indonesia for the first time. This is the first record of this morphotype outside Holarctic. Based on SEM observations we revealed that stomatocyst 53 has a true complex collar rather than a simple one. An emended description of stomatocyst 53 is given.

Key words: chrysophytes, morphotypes, stomatocysts, Bali, Indonesia
