A survey of the summer diatom flora of Chambers Creek, Clearwater County, Minnesota, is presented, continuing an inventory of the algal flora from Itasca State Park. Chambers Creek is a short, second-order, hardwater stream with great habitat diversity and a rich algal flora. One hundred and twenty-six diatom taxa representing 45 genera are reported, with many new reports from the park. Recent taxonomic revisions have been incorporated into this study and seven new nomenclatural combinations proposed.
