Bacillariophyceae, Diatoms, Fragilaria jloridana, New Jersey Pine Barrens
Periphyton diatom collections from the South Branch Forked River, Ocean County, New Jersey, included a species which resembled Fragilaria floridana Hanna. Comparison of these specimens in the New Jersey samples with the original material of Hanna (1933) indicates that these specimens are indeed F. floridana. These are the first living specimens reported since Hanna's original description from fossil diatomaceous material. Some ecological data are included.
