The red tide ciliate Mesodinium rubrum (= Myrionecta rubra) is known to contain symbionts of cryptophyte origin. Molecular data have shown that the symbiont is closely related or similar to free-living species of the Teleaulax/Plagioselmis/Geminigera clade. This suggests that the symbiont of M. rubrum is either a temporary symbiont or a quite recently established symbiont. Here, we present data from a number of experiments in which we offered M. rubrum a phototrophic dinoflagellate and 8… CONTINUE READING
