Paper deals with data on distribution and new findings of several species of cladocerans of gen. Diaphanosoma Fischer, 1850 (Crustacea: Cladocera) in the water bodies and water courses of Ukraine. Issues of their habitat sites in Ukraine regarding their main areals are discussed. Beside widely distributed Diaphanosoma brachyurum (Lievin, 1848) in Ukraine occur three more species: D. dubium Manuilova, 1964, D. orghidani Negrea, 1982 and D. mongolianum Ueno, 1938. The latter of them was found for the first time in the waters of Ukraine. Finding of D. dubium in Ukraine indicates expansion of its areal westward.
