REGALI-SELEGHIM, Mirna Helena; GODINHO, Mirna Januária Leal  and  MATSUMURA-TUNDISI, Takako. Checklist of "protozoans" from São Paulo State , Brazil. Biota Neotrop. [online]. 2011, vol.11, suppl.1, pp.389-426. ISSN 1676-0611.

Species checklists are important to know the local biodiversity, its ecology and scale its biotechnological and economic exploration and conservation. In this work the protozoan data (ciliates, naked amoebas, tecamoebas, heliozoans and heterotrophic flagellates) from São Paulo State have been listed. From 75 environments analized to this moment, 471 different protozoan taxa were recorded, distributed in 218 genera and 304 species. From the protozoan groups analyzed, the most representative was the ciliate with 160 genera and 219 species. Among the ciliates, two were new records: Neobursaridium gigas Balech, 1941 to Brazil and Loxodes rex Dragesco, 1970 to South America

Keywords : fresh-water protozoans; biodiversity of the State of São Paulo; BIOTA/FAPESP Program.
