New species Hemidinium nephroideum Krachmalny sp. nov. (Dinophyta) was found in a rain pool in the upper section of Nahal Oren basin, Mount Carmel near Haifa (Israel). H. nephroideum has common features with representatives of genera Hemidinium Stein and Bernardinium Chodat. Due to the theca structure the authors refer the new species to the genus Hemidinium. In the paper we present diagnosis of new species, its comparison with a similar species, H. nasutum Stein, and original drawings and SEM-microphotographs.
