In the present investigation, algal samples were collected from six selected sites of Ansupa lake and altogether 72 algal species belonging to Cyanobacteria (11 species), Euglenophyceae (4 species), Bacillariophyceae (07 species), Chlorophyceae (17 species), Ulvophyceae (1 Species), Trebouxiophyceae (2 species), Zygnematophyceae (29 species) and Charophyceae (1 species) were recorded. Furthermore, our study was revealed that desmid diversity was dominant followed by green algae in the lake, which was indicating the oligotrophic condition of water in the lake.
