Three new freshwater species of centrohelid heliozoans: Acanthocystis crescenta sp. nov., A. kirilli sp. nov., and Choanocystis minima sp. nov.

Abstract

Three new species of centrohelid heliozoans Acanthocystis crescenta, A. kirilli, and Choanocystis minima from two freshwater lakes of Valamo Island (North-Western Russia) were studied using light- and scanning electron microscopy.
