A total of forty-three taxa were studied and described. The taxa belong to three orders, thirteen families and twenty two genera. Eighteen genera are new records for the country, as follows: Aphanothece, Aphanocapsa, Merismopedia, Gloeocapsa, Chroococcus, Entophysalis, Chlorogloea, Stanieria, Myxosarcina, Pleurocapsa, Pseudanabaena, Jaaginema, Geitlerinema, Porphyrosiphon, Spirulina, Leptolyngbya, Oscillatoria and Homoeothrix. Twelve species were found in distinctly different habitats from those from which the original type species were collected and described: Aphanocapsa cf. muscicola, Gloeocapsa cf. atrata, G. cf. arenaria, G. cf. punctata, Chroococcus cf. helveticus, C. cf. minor, C. cf. polyedriformis, Myxosarcina cf. concinna, cf. Jaaginema pseudogeminatum, Phormidium cf. priestley, P. cf. puteale and Homoeothrix cf. gracilis. One new combination is proposed [Stanieria minima (Geitl.) Silva et Pienaar].
