Abstract

Thirty-one chrysophyte stomatocysts are reported from the dystrophic Staw Toporowy Wyżni peat bog in the Tatra National Park, Poland. Of these, 10 morphotypes are new to science, 5 are new to Europe, and 3 are new to Poland. These 18 stomatocysts are documented by original descriptions, SEM micrographs and information on their general distribution. The stomatocyst communities of Staw Toporowy Wyżni peat bog and Staw Toporowy Niżni peat bog are compared.
