Diatoms from Japanese islands have only been studied taxonomically for a short period of time.
Although initial research was by several European diatomists (Ehrenberg 1854, Brun and Tempère 1889, Pantocsek 1892 and Meister 1913-4),
Japanese diatomists have become increasingly active since World War II.
Recently, many Japanese diatomists have been working in taxonomical, ecological and environmental fields.
Many endemic taxa have been described from Japan, but more study is required to understand the reasons behind this endemism.
This exsiccata set (comprised of 20 prepared microscope slides) is made from Japanese freshwater microalgal specimens
and is issued by the National Museum of Nature and Science. Future sets will be issued at irregular intervals.
