#### Abstract

Given a compact connected Riemann surface $X$ of genus $g \geq 2$, and integers $r \geq 2$, $d_p \gt 0$ and $d_z \gt 0$, in [BDHW], a generalized quot scheme $\mathcal{Q}_X (r, d_p, d_z)$ was introduced. Our aim here is to compute the holomorphic automorphism group of $\mathcal{Q}_X (r, d_p, d_z)$. It is shown that the connected component of $\mathrm{Aut} \; \mathcal{Q}_X (r, d_p, d_z)$ containing the identity automorphism is $\mathrm{PGL}(r, \mathbb{C})$. As an application of it, we prove that if the generalized quot schemes of two Riemann surfaces are holomorphically isomorphic, then the two Riemann surfaces themselves are isomorphic.
