Accumulations of diatoms of the genera Anaulus and Asterionella are recorded from high-energy surf zones in southwestern and south Australia respectively. This is the first record of surf diatom accumulations found on the coast of mainland Australia. The relationship between the diatom accumulations and surf zone morphodynamics and circulation is discussed.-Authors
