Abstract

Twenty-one species of Rhizopoda belonging to eight genera and six families were documented from Deepor Beel, an important floodplain lake of the Brahmaputra River basin, showing the richest diversity of testaceans known to date from any freshwater ecosystem in India. Two species are new records from Assam, while all species are new to this Ramsar site. Our results show a Lobosea/Filosea ratio of 2.0, qualitative importance of Euglyphidae and Centropyxidae = Difflugidae and species richness of Difflugia a; Centropyxis.
