Abstract/Summary

Notholca squamula was rarely found in Loch Leven when the water temperature rose above 10°C. Under favourable temperature conditions its abundance appeared to be closely related to that of Asterionella formosa. In the laboratory the animal was seen to feed on this diatom by breaking open the frustule and ingesting the cell contents.
