Abstract
Four samples collected in the periodically dry, shallow water ecosystems on the island of Maracá (Roraima, Brazil) were investigated for rotifers. This survey is the first in the area. 159 species were identified and the rotifer community is characteristic of small bodies of water with decomposing vegetation. Most of the rotifer species are cosmopolitan. Dicranophorus sebastus (HARRING & MYERS 1928) and Lecane clara (BRYCE 1892) are new for the Neotropics. Three new species are described: Lepadella christinei, L. tricostata and Testudtnella robertsoni.
