Abstract: In Corfu charophytes were found both in fresh-, brackish water and salt lakes. The three freshwater lakes are highly eutrophic with a rich vegetation of phanerogams. In two of them Chara globularis was the only species and in the third only C. hellenica was found. Several other eutrophic lakes were without charophytes. In one slightly brackish water lake I found Chara vulgaris and in the salt works (Alykes) in the south part of the island I found salt lakes filled with Lamprothamnium papulosum. The newly described, Chara hellenica has unique characters in cortex structure, bract-cells and the sexual organs. The type locality, Lake Bertonou is an unusual lake, with interesting chemical parameters. In Amorgos Chara vulgaris was found in two springs.
