Water samples were collected using a plankton net with 22 μm pores. Diatom cells were investigated under a light microscope and were then isolated for the single-cell PCR procedure. Phylogenetic inference showed that the isolates collected from the study area were affiliated with a naviculoid diatom Haslea howeana. We have reported the first molecular data concerning these species from the Black Sea and have contributed a new species record for the Turkish Algal Flora.
