This paper presents data on species diversity of Naviculales (Bacillariophyta) revealed in small water bodies of Kiev, studied by SEM and light microscopy. Algological materials were collected in water bodies of various types (small rivers, streams, springs, canals, ditches, ponds, lakes, flood water bodies, and puddles) in different seasons. Literature data were analyzed with reference to current nomenclature changes. The changes in species composition of Naviculales for almost 100 years of study are discussed. In small reservoirs of Kiev 78 species of 24 genera and 12 families of Naviculales were found. Genus Navicula leads in species (18 species, 23%) followed by Stauroneis (9 species, 11.5%) and Pinnularia (6 species, 7.7%). Thirty-seven species are new for the city of Kiev, including four new for Ukraine: Navicula antonii Lange-Bert., N. caterva Hohn et Hellerman, N. upsalensis (Grunow) Perag., and Stauroneis subgracilis Ehrenb.. According to both original findings and literature data, in small water bodies of Kiev, 110 species of Naviculales from 25 genera and 12 families were found. At present, species structure of Naviculales has undergone some changes: the share of genus Pinnularia in the taxonomic spectrum decreases compared to literature data due to the disappearance of peatbods and wetlands in the Kiev area.
