The historical reasons for the formation of approaches to biogeography and distribution of diatoms are analyzed. One of the prevailing concepts was cosmopolitan distribution of diatoms. Approach described by sentence "everything is everywhere, the environment selects" is discussed. The idea concerning local distribution of many taxa is substantiated; it is supported by modern ideas about species concept in diatoms and presence of cryptic and pseudocryptic diversity. New data about allopatric and sympatric speciation in diatoms and other protists are discussed. Presence of species flocks in ancient basins, flagship taxa, hotspots and dark diversity are discussed and illustrated by original data. The concept of endemic areas is discussed.
