Abstract

Desmid samples were collected from Australia's Northern Territory and the northeastern part of Western Australia. The tropical, northern part of Australia appears to be extraordinarily rich in desmid taxa but relatively poorly documented. From the present investigation some twenty taxa, interesting from a taxonomic or biogeographical point of view, are discussed separately. Six species and one variety new to science are described: Cosmarium dichotomum, C. lineogranulosum, C. porosum, C. spinoscrobiculosum, Euastrum scrobiculosum, Micrasterias archeri and Staurastrum sinuatum var. croasdaleae.
