Abstract

Epiphytic diatoms on Nymphaea alba L. floating leaves during plant growing seasons in the oligotrophic Sub-Mediterranean wetland Hutovo Blato, South Bosnia and Herzegovina, were investigated in 2003 and 2004. In total, 135 taxa (species and infraspecific taxa) of epiphytic diatoms were identified. Genera with the largest number of taxa were: Eunotia (14), Gomphonema (13), Cymbella and Navicula (9), Cyclotella (6), Diatoma and Nitzschia (5). Only three taxa were recorded in all samples: Brebissonia lanceolata, Eunotia arcus and Navicula radiosa. The most abundant taxa were Cocconeis placentula, Cyclotella comta, Eunotia arcus and Gomphonema longiceps.
