Generalized literature and original data on diversity of algae (including cyanoprocaryotes) of the continental part of Israel are analysed. Peculiarities of the Israeli algoflora are characterized with reference to its endemism. To date 289 genera and 1208 species (1309 infraspecific taxa) of algae are known in continental Israel. Bacillariophyta (402 species, 437 infr. taxa), Chlorophyta (335 species, 364 infr. taxa), and Cyanoprocaryota (327 species, 349 nfr. taxa) are the most diverse taxonomic groups in the Israeli flora of algae.
