Publication Date



Forty-three scaled chrysophytes (Synurophyceae: 26 Mallomonas spp., nine Synura spp.; Chrysophyceae: three Chrysosphaerella and Spiniferomonas spp., and two Paraphysomonas spp.) in 41 water samples from Columbia, Franklin, Hamilton, Herkimer, Otsego and St. Lawrence Counties, New York, were identified using TEM. Fourteen taxa are new records from New York, including one new report for the U.S. Temperature, pH, and conductivity ranges of the prevalent species are discussed. Non-siliceous scales of two colorless free-living flagellates, Gyromitus disomatus, an organism of uncertain taxonomic affinity, and the organic scaled chrysophyte-like Pseudodendromonas vlkii, were also observed.
