Abstract

In Ukrainian water bodies, the genus Mayorella Schaeffer, 1926 is represented by ten species: Mayorella cantabrigiensis Page, 1983, Mayorella vespertilioides Page, 1983, Mayorella bigemma Schaeffer, 1918, Mayorella leidyi Bovee, 1970, Mayorella penardi Page, 1972, Mayorella viridis Leidy, 1874, Mayorella sp. (1), Mayorella sp. (2), Mayorella sp. (3), Mayorella sp. (4). The most widely distributed are M. cantabrigiensis, M. vespertilioides, Mayorella sp. (1), the least observed are M. leidyi, M. penardi, M. viridis, Mayorella sp. (4). The distribution of amoebae is influenced by abiotic environmental factors.
