Algal flora in the acidic bog-lake, Baláta-tÓ were sampled twice in 1991 and bimonthly in 1995-1997. Baláta-tó is a Nature Reserve of diluvial origin with interesting and rare higher plant species and associations. Previous algological investigators demonstrated the presence of 177 algal taxa and recognized the uniqueness of its microscopic flora. During our observations 231 taxa were found, 105 of them belonging to Chlorophyta (Volvocales 16, Chlorococcales 46, Desmidiales 41, Ulotrichales 2). The present paper gives a brief survey of the rare and characteristic chlorophytes of the lake.
