Keywords:Bacillariophyta, diatoms, periphyton, southern Brazil, taxonomy
AbstractAbstract: Eunotia species from a stream located in the surrounding area of the Iguaçu National Park conservation unit were analyzed. Samples were monthly collected from September 2012 to August 2013. The periphytic material, manually obtained by squeezing aquatic macrophytes, was oxidized and analyzed under light and scanning electron microscopy. Twenty-one infrageneric taxa of Eunotia were identified, measured, and illustrated. Eunotia caniculoides sp. nov. is proposed as a new species, and eight taxa are new records for Paraná state.
