Abstract Among all organisms, the dinoflagellates display the highest diversity in their plastids, indicating multiple plastid origins from a broad variety of algae by replacing the common peridinin-containing plastid. One such replacement seems to have taken place in the genus Dinophysis, where the plastids show characteristics of a cryptomonad. Natural populations of D. acuminata. D. acuta and D. norvegica were collected from the Baltic Sea, North Sea and northern Atlantic Ocean. We sequenced… Expand
