Abstract
    Twenty-three species and forms from six genera of heterotrophic euglenids (Euglenozoa, Protista) encountered in marine sediments from various stations in the Gippsland Basin, southeastern Australia are described with uninterpreted records based on light microscopy. The records include accounts of one new taxon (Notosolenus caudatus sp. nov.) and of five unidentified taxa. The majority of species described here have also been found at other locations worldwide. I am unable to assess if the new and unidentified species are endemic and if the euglenid flagellate community from the Gippsland Basin is distinctive because of the lack of intensive studies elsewhere.
