Hitherto, 25 species of Vaucheria have been observed in the Netherlands. V. minuta Blum & Conover is recorded for the first time from the European Atlantic coast and V. vipera Blum for the second time. For V. minuta and V. vipera some morphological details are given. Morphological variation in V. compacta (Collins) Collins seems to be correlated with the salinity of the habitat.
