Holocene lacustrine sediments from Zalavári pond (Balaton system, Hungary) were studied for diatoms. A detailed documentation of the diatom flora is presented, as the main aim of this paper was a better understanding of the diatom biodiversity in the historical Lake Balaton that has a very diverse, but poorly documented algal flora. Some rare species and taxa lacking clear taxonomy are discussed in detail in the paper, such as Achnanthes johncarteri Lange-Bertalot et Krammer, Fragilaria hungarica Pantocsek, Fragilaria cf. istvanffyi Pantocsek, Kolbesia kolbei (Hustedt) Round et Bukhtiyarova, Stauroneis smithii Grunow var. incisa Pantocsek and a Hippodonta species.
