This report illustrates and characterizes algae (exclusive of diatoms) found in Kings Canyon National Park, California and describes their distribution among the Rae Lakes within. It is the first taxonomic study of the freshwater algae for the southern Sierra Nevada and the most comprehensive for the range. It serves as a reference manual for the identification of algae in alpine and subalpine regions and establishes baseline data for future investigations. More than half (113) of the 210 forms encountered were desmids (Chlorophyta).
