The Teleorman River is part of the Argeş-Vedea River Basin, being the most important tributary of the Vedea River. The Teleorman River has a total length of 196 km, of which 97 km in Teleorman County. The main tributaries are Clăniţa and Teleormănelul. The present paper was based on the bibliographic material as well as the field research carried out during 2016-2017. The main purpose of the study was to determine the structure of the phytobentic biocenosis of Teleorman River. The research objectives were the following: identification of qualitative and quantitative structure of phytobenthic biocenoses in the established monitoring points; determination of the phytoplankton algae families in the monitoring stations; establishing saprobity indices for each species identified and incorporation of the monitoring sections into the appropriate saprobity class. We have identified 54 species in the phytobenthonic samples, grouped in three phyla: Cyanophyta, Bacillariophyta and Chlorophyta. In all months of sampling, Bacillariophyta was best represented.
