Abstract

We surveyed Thuy Tien lake and Nhu Y river, Thua Thien Hue province, Vietnam, for rotifers from March to August 2010, and additionally in February 2012 in Thuy Tien lake. A total of 98 species-level taxa are identified, belonging to 31 genera and 21 families. Of there, 52 are first records for Vietnam, Filinia minuta (Smirnov, 1928) is new to the Oriental region and Ploesoma asiaticum n. sp. is new to science. These results increase the rotifer record for Vietnam from 122 to 174 taxa. In addition to describing the new taxon, we provide comparative illustrations including trophi scanning electron microscopy photographs of Ploesoma hudsoni (Imhof 1891).
