WANTING PANG, QUANXI WANG

Abstract


Chrysophycean stomatocysts from 167 samples taken at 35 localities in Xinjiang Province, China were observed by scanning electron microscopy. The stomatocysts assemblages are characterized by low diversity and low abundance. Only 19 morphotypes were identified, of which nine are new to science. New stomatocysts were described following International Statospore Working Group (ISWG) guidelines. This is the first report of chrysophycean stomatocysts from Central Asia.
