This compilation lists the common diatoms of the Order Centrales and the Family Fragilariaceae from various freshwater environments in the Netherlands. The studied material consists of water samples and modern to Holocene sediment samples of at least 15 locations in the Netherlands. A total of 91 diatom taxa from 27 genera were recognized as being common and were documented on light micrographs. Information on the taxonomy, ecology and geographical distribution of all taxa is also provided.
