This paper documents the species diversity of the diatom genus Attheya from the Sea of Japan. Two species (A. arenicola and A. longicornis) were studied in field samples and in culture. Their morphology is described using light and electron microscopy; the ecology and the distribution data are provided. A. arenicola is a new record for the seas of Russia.
