Abstract: A total of 25 algal taxa were found in subaerial samples from Seneca Cavern, an earth crack cave in Seneca County, OH. Most algae were typical aerophilic species, with Chlorella miniata, Pleurochloris commutata, Navicula tantula, andNavtcula contenta f. biceps being the most abundant species. The flora was species poor in comparison to other caves, likely because of dimness of lighting and absence of standing and running water. This paper represents the first report of cave algae in Ohio.
