These are: Chara contraria, Chara denudata, Chara fibrosa, Chara vulgaris, Chara zeylanica, and its var. diaphana f. oerstediana, Lamprothamnium succinctum and Nitella mucronata. Detailed description of each taxon with photomicrographs is given. The most common species is C. zeylanica and the frequency of occurrence in descending order is C. zeylanica > C. denudata = C. fibrosa > C. contraria = C. vulgaris > L. succinctum = N. mucronata.
