Abstract: Anhui Province is situated in the subtropical and temperate zones. With favorable climate this district is rich in algae. During 1982-1986, the author made a number of collections of the algal specimens-about 1000 samples from 36 counties and cities of the province. The identification result shows that there are about 30 species and 15 varieties of Scenedesmus in the province. In present paper, however, reported are only some new taxa and new records of Scenedesmus. The 4 new species are Scenedesmus anhuiensis, S. huangshanensis, S. quadrialatus and S. wuhuensis, the 2 new varieties are Scenedesmus prismaticus var. spinosus and S. smithii var. spinulosus, and the 4 new records of distribution in China are Scenedesmus denticulatus var. australis Playfair, S. prismaticus Bruhl et Biswas, S. quadricauda var. dentatus Dedussand S. smithii Teiling.
