This paper provides the Latvian names of the Charophytes and the associated morphological terms in Latvian language, newly made and now accepted by the Subcommission of the Terminology. Explanation of morphological terms and shematical drawings as well as general morphological descriptions of the Charophytes are given. Special attention is drawn to explain morphological terms which have been not or have been seldomly used in the literature in Latvian, but are very important for use in species determination and description. The interpretation of many neccesary morphological terms is given for the first time in Latvian. The paper summarizes the Latvian names of 25 species and four genera of Charophytes as well as explanation of 27 morphological terms. Translations of morphological terms are given in English, German, Latin and Russian languages.

Key words: Chara, Charophytes, morphology, Nitella, Nitellopsis, terms, Tolypella.
