Phylogeny of some of the major genera of dinoflagellates based on ultrastructure and partial LSU rDNA sequence data, including the erection of three new genera of unarmoured dinoflagellates
Evidence from partial large-subunit (LSU) rDNA sequencing has been combined with ultrastructure, including details of the flagellar apparatus, in a number of phototrophic dinoflagellates, with the…
ON THE IDENTITY OF KARLODINIUM VENEFICUM AND DESCRIPTION OF KARLODINIUM ARMIGER SP. NOV. (DINOPHYCEAE), BASED ON LIGHT AND ELECTRON MICROSCOPY, NUCLEAR‐ENCODED LSU RDNA, AND PIGMENT COMPOSITION 1
Phylogenetic analysis confirmed K. armiger to be related to other species of Karlodinium; thus forming a monophyletic genus, which, in the LSU tree, occupies a sister group position to Takayama de Salas, Bolch, Botes et Hallegraeff.
Phylogeny of the Bacillariaceae with emphasis on the genus Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) based on partial LSU rDNA
A phylogenetic analysis of 42 species based on the first 872 base pairs of nuclear-encoded large subunit (LSU) rDNA suggested that Nitzschia is not monophyletic, as expected from the great morphological diversity within the genus.

In a first attempt to assess the pan-Arctic diversity of pelagic and sea-ice eukaryotes, a wealth of data from various sources were reviewed, while taxonomic data were confirmed with current nomenclature and classification.
Studies on woloszynskioid dinoflagellates IV: The genus Biecheleria gen. nov.
The well known freshwater dinoflagellate Woloszynskia pseudopalustris is transferred to the new genus Biecheleria, based on the very unusual structure of the eyespot (comprising a stack of…
AMPHIDINIUM REVISITED. I. REDEFINITION OF AMPHIDINIUM (DINOPHYCEAE) BASED ON CLADISTIC AND MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSES 1
Cl cladistic analysis and analyses based on partial LSU rDNA revealed that Amphidinium species with minute left‐deflected epicones formed a monophyletic clade that included the type species A. operculatum, and an emendation of the genus definition is presented.
Morphology, toxin composition and LSU rDNA phylogeny of Alexandrium minutum (Dinophyceae) from Denmark, with some morphological observations on other European strains
SYMBIODINIUM NATANS SP. NOV.: A “FREE‐LIVING” DINOFLAGELLATE FROM TENERIFE (NORTHEAST‐ATLANTIC OCEAN) 1
It is proposed that the Symbiodinium isolate from Tenerife is a new species (viz. S. natans), and morphological features of the thecal plate pattern with gene sequence data are suggested to elucidate further the species diversity of SymbiodInium.
Comparative study of Gymnodinium mikimotoi and Gymnodinium aureolum, comb. nov. (=Gyrodinium aureolum) based on morphology, pigment composition, and molecular data
It is concluded that the European isolates, formerly identified as Gyrodinium aureolum, Gyrod inium cf.
Marine epibenthic dinoflagellates from Malaysia‐a study of live cultures and preserved samples based on light and scanning electron microscopy
Examination of 62 samples revealed that Malaysia has rich diversity of benthic dinoflagellates, with 24 species representing 9 genera, and the diversity of potentially toxic species in Malaysian waters indicates that Malaysia may encounter problems with ciguatera and/or DSP.
