Sixteen species of silica-scaled chrysophytes were identified from peat bogs in Bohemian and Saxonian Switzerland. Due to low pH-values the most common species were Mallomonas ouradion and Synura echinulata. Mallomonas adamas and M. mangofera f. foveata are new records for the Czech Republic and M. ouradion is a new record for Germany. Environmental requirements and biogeography are mentioned for selected species.
