We describe a new member from the genus Navicula Bory sensu stricto using light and scanning electron microscopy. The new species was found in Vietnam, and is a large-celled species with longitudinal grooves present on the valve exterior. Taxa sharing this feature are known from the genus Navicula, as well as the genera Haslea Simonsen, Craticula Grunow, Gyrosigma Hassall and Proschkinia Karajeva. The new species from Vietnam is compared with other, similar taxa of Navicula, and comments are presented about the systematics and biogeography of the group of Navicula species with this characteristic feature.
