Abstract

During the past autumn several cultures were made from ponds, springs and streams in the vicinity of Fayette for the purpose of providing material for class use. As the number of species of Protozoa represented appeared to be much greater than the author had observed elsewhere, a record of their identity and abundance was kept. A partial result of this work is the present list of thirty-three species, in addition to which several others were observed, but not identified. Inasmuch as Dr. Edmundson's "Protozoa of Iowa" formed the basis of the taxonomic portion of the work, the Euglenidae are included in the list, although the author is by no means convinced of their animal nature.
