Note(s): The algal planktonic species from the Indian River near Vera Beach, Florida are presented as a check-list. Two-hundred-and-thirty species representing 68 genera of diatoms were observed. Twenty species of dinoflagellates from 9 genera are also listed from a year's collection. Scant information is available on the species of phytoplankton of the Indian River. Only cursory examinations of this flora were made as parts of larger ecological studies, by Stephens (1974, 1975) and David (1978). Stephens and Gibson (1979, 1980 a, b, c) have examined several epiphytic species of the diatom genus Mastogloia from the Indian River, yet the phytoplanktonic flora was still undescribed.
