Forty-nine plankton samples were collected from the Lake Itasca Region, Minnesota over a period sporadically covering the summers of 1980, 1981 and 1987. A total of 22 freshwater heterotrophic siliceous-scaled species were observed: 18 heliozoa, two thaumatomonad flagellates, one bicosoecid, and one testate amoeba. Scale identifications were based on transmission electron microscopy. New records for North America include two heliozoans and one thaumatomonad flagellate. Five heliozoa taxa and one thaumatomonad flagellate are new records for the U.S. Wujek DE. Freshwater silica-scaled heterotrophic protista: heliozoa, thaumatomonad flagellates, amoebae, and bicosoecids, from the Lake Itasca Region, Minnesota.
