Abstract
A revision of the diatom genus Navicula s.s. in inland water samples from the Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic resulted in the description of five new species, viz. Navicula australoshetlandica Van de Vijver sp. nov., N. dobrinatemniskovae Zidarova & Van de Vijver sp. nov., N. cremeri Van de Vijver & Zidarova sp. nov., N. conveyi Van de Vijver sp. nov. and Navicula bicephaloides Van de Vijver & Zidarova sp. nov. The new species are extensively compared with other similar species. The morphology and taxonomy of three other Navicula taxa present in the same materials are briefly discussed. A critical revision of literature reports of Navicula taxa in the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic region indicates that despite the large number of records the genus is rather species-poor in the Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic. From a biogeographical point of view, there is a clear separation between the Sub-Antarctic localities in the southern Indian Ocean and the islands in the southern Atlantic Ocean, with several species showing a restricted biogeography.
