Abstract:Abundance and distribution of oil-producing microalgae species in various waters of Lombok islands, Indonesia have been observed. Microalga samples were collected based on a concentration method, using plankton net eyed nets 20 microns. Observations of samples, i.e.identifications and abundance calculations of each microalga species conducted at the Laboratory of Biology, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Mataram. The result showed that, in the community of

Types of oil-producing freshwater microalgae in Lombok Island consist of 19 species of potential producing-oil microalgae, identified with high abundance and dominance, covering Microcystis aeruginosa, M. incerta, Nostoc sp., and Pediastrumboryanum.
