At present, historical biogeography of diatoms sits uneasily within the broader scope of the subject, partly because schemes of relationships are few and partly because the majority of practitioners of diatom biogeography treat the subject as a branch of applied ecology. Historical factors in determining diatom distributions, however, are now recognised to be of some significance (Vanormelingen et al. 2007; Williams and Reid 2006c; Williams 2011), even if most explanations of present-day diatom distributions defer to the primacy of ecological processes (Vanormelingen et al.

This example suggests that at least some Australian diversity in the genus Eunotia relates directly to that in South America (Brazil: E. didyma f. obtusa ; Peru: E. didyma var. jugulata , E. didyma var. pileus ; Argentina: E. didyma var. papilio ). Three other endemic species of Eunotia have been named, two described by Brady (1979, both are nom. nud. , as they lacked a Latin description at the time of publication): E.
