The genus composition of cyanobacteria (particularly Chroococcus sp.) and their abundance in mosquito breeding sites at Lake Mogan (Ankara, Turkey) increased from August to September. Six unicellular cyanobacteria that had different morphological properties were isolated and succesfully cultivated. According to the mode of division, these six strain were classified as the represantatives of subgroup 1 (order Choroococcales). One of the isolates was identified as Synechococcus sp. and one as Gloeocapsa sp., and four were identified as Synechocystic sp. One of the four Synechocystis spp. was shown to be capable of heterotrophic growth.
