Aulacoseira glubokoyensis sp nov (Bacillariophyceae), a new centric diatom from the Maritime Antarctic region

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

A new centric diatom, Aulacoseira glubokoyensis sp. nov., is described from the Maritime Antarctic region. The morphology of the species is illustrated using detailed light and scanning electron microscopy observations. Its main discriminating features include the presence of typical irregularly shaped dendritic spines, at least two rimoportulae, marginal striae on the discus and a very large Ringleiste. The new species is compared to similar species worldwide. Aulacoseira glubokoyensis has only been observed in a sediment core taken from Profound Lake on the Fildes Peninsula (King George Island, South Shetland Islands).
