This catalogue aims to compile the information available on continental (recent and fossil) diatoms in Portugal, including the Archipelagos of Madeira and Azores, since the early beginnings of the diatom studies in Portugal at the middle of the XIXth century until 2010.

The diatom taxa are presented following an updated taxonomy; nevertheless, in order to provide a historical overview, the nomenclatural synonyms found in the literature from Portugal are also included. For the 1381 taxa the following information is presented: basionym, nomenclatural synonyms, citations (with the precise indication of the sampling sites), frequent taxonomical synonyms and a distribution map.
