Abstract

The paper deals with a systematic account of 17 euglenoid phytoplakton. Of these, seven taxa belong to Lepocinclis and seven to Strombomonas. The other three taxa are Astasia cylindrical Pringsheim, A. pygmaea Skuja and Menoidium tremulum Skv. The taxa are reported from some pond ecosystems located in Pirojpur and Barisal districts of Bangladesh.
