A hand-operated suction sampler designed to sample benthos from fine to coarse rocky substrata in standing and flowing waters is described. The suction sampler collected a similar number of taxa but more individuals from a flowing riffle than a modified Surber sampler. A critique of the suction sampler is presented, illustrating the suitability of the sampler for quantitative studies of streams with highly variable discharge or intermittency.
