Abstract

Frustulia bahlsii sp. nov. is formally described from soft-water sites from Maine to North Carolina along the eastern United States. The new species is separated from other members of the genus by the following suite of characters: large size, spatulate terminal raphe ends (i.e. not provided with a “porte-crayon”), and coarser longitudinal and transverse striae. Frustulia bahlsiiappears closely allied to F. franguelliiManguin (nom. nud.) within the F. rhomboides(Ehrenberg) De Toni group. © 1997 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
