Algal flora of reservoirs in Iran representing 1129 species of algae (1339 infr. taxa) from 9 divisions of algae are revealed. They include Cyanoprokaryota − 172 species (183 infr. taxa), Euglenophyta − 53 (57), Chrysophyta − 17 (21), Xanthophyta − 39 (40), Bacillariophyta − 531 (677), Dinophyta − 25 (30), Cryptophyta − 7 (7), Chlorophyta − 172 (185), and Streptophyta − 113 (129 infr. taxa). The data on the spectra of leading genera are presented. Algal flora of investigated reservoirs were divided into five groups: diatomic, diatomic-green, diatomic-blue-green, diatomic- streptophyte, and diatomic-blue-green-green or diatomic-green-blue-green. Comparative characteristics of received data with the same algal flora from Central Asia were carried out.
