Based on samples collected from two mountain lakes named as Lacs Paponoun located in the Cameroon Highlands (Africa), an assemblage of chrysophycean stomatocysts was investigated using scanning electron microscopy. Twenty stomatocysts are reported and described following the guidelines of the International Statospore Working Group (ISWG). Eleven cysts are described as new morphotypes. The present study documents the largest assemblage of chrysophycean stomatocysts from the recent sediments in tropical Africa detected so far. Additionally, it provides new data on global diversity of chrysophycean stomatocysts.
