Field sampling was undertaken to investigate the occurrence of Pseudo‐nitzschia Peragallo species in eight locations along the coast of Malaysian Borneo. A total of 108 strains of Pseudo‐nitzschia species were isolated, and their morphology examined with SEM and TEM. Additionally, molecular data from nuclear‐encoded partial LSU rDNA, and ITS regions, were characterized. A total of five species were confidently identified based on a combination of distinct morphological characteristics and… 

The genus Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) in Malaysia, including new records and a key to species inferred from morphology-based phylogeny

For the first time high species richness of Pseudo-nitzschia is recorded in the confined coasts of Malaysia, with a special emphasis on the poroid structure of the striae to aid in species identification.

Description of Pseudo-nitzschia cuspidata var. manzanillensis var. nov. (Bacillariophyceae): morphology and molecular characterization of a variety from the central Mexican pacific

A new pseudo-cryptic taxon is described within the Pseudo-nitzschia/pseudodelicatissima/cuspidata complex, as a variety of P. cuspidata.

The diatom genus Pseudo‐nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) in New South Wales, Australia: morphotaxonomy, molecular phylogeny, toxicity, and distribution

Examination of high‐risk estuaries of south‐eastern Australia revealed that the “P. seriata group” had highest cell densities in the austral summer, autumn, or spring (species dependent), and lowest cell density in theAustral winter, while the ‘P. delicatissima group’ had highest in winter and spring.

Integrative taxonomy of the Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) populations in the NW Adriatic Sea, with a focus on a novel cryptic species in the P. delicatissima species complex

Results of the integrative taxonomic approach clearly revealed that P. arenysensis is a cryptic species within P. delicatissima species complex, and is closely related to P. werenysensis, which forms a subclade and a sister group in LSU and ITS phylogenies, respectively.

Pseudo‐nitzschia nanaoensis sp. nov. (Bacillariophyceae) from the Chinese coast of the South China Sea

This species is morphologically most similar to P. brasiliana, but differs by a denser arrangement of fibulae, interstriae, and poroids, as well as by the structure of the valvocopula and the narrow second band.

High diversity of Pseudo‐nitzschia along the northern coast of Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo), with descriptions of P. bipertita sp. nov. and P. limii sp. nov. (Bacillariophyceae)

Two new Pseudo‐nitzschia species were established from the Miri coast of Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo) and underwent TEM observation and molecular characterization and were supported by the phylogenetic reconstructions of the nuclear‐encoded large subunit ribosomal gene and the second internal transcribed spacer.

A non‐toxigenic but morphologically and phylogenetically distinct new species of Pseudo‐nitzschia, P. sabit sp. nov. (Bacillariophyceae)

A new species of Pseudo‐nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) is described from plankton samples collected from Port Dickson and Manzanillo Bay, Malaysia, with a distinctive falcate cell valve, from which they form sickle‐like colonies in both environmental samples and cultured strains.

A new diatom species P. hallegraeffii sp. nov. belonging to the toxic genus Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) from the East Australian Current

A new species belonging to the toxin producing diatom genus Pseudo-nitzschia, P. hallegraeffii sp. nov., is delineated and described from the East Australian Current (EAC). Clonal cultures were

Morphology, phylogeny and taxonomy of species within the Pseudo-nitzschia americana complex (Bacillariophyceae) with descriptions of two new species, Pseudo-nitzschia brasiliana and Pseudo-nitzschia linea

It is concluded that P. americana can be assigned to Pseudo-nitzschia, following previous uncertainty as to whether it might belong to Nitzschio, and differences in distribution support these morphological differences.

The description of the four species helps to explain the variation observed in mating experiments on cultures originally designated as P. pseudodelicatissima or P. cuspidata, and they are described as new species based on morphological and molecular data.

CRYPTIC AND PSEUDO‐CRYPTIC DIVERSITY IN DIATOMS—WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF PSEUDO‐NITZSCHIA HASLEANA SP. NOV. AND P. FRYXELLIANA SP. NOV. 1

A high degree of pseudo‐cryptic diversity was reported in the well‐studied diatom genus Pseudo‐nitzschia, and two new species, P. hasleana sp.

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.

IDENTIFICATION AND ASSESSMENT OF DOMOIC ACID PRODUCTION IN OCEANIC PSEUDO‐NITZSCHIA (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE) FROM IRON‐LIMITED WATERS IN THE NORTHEAST SUBARCTIC PACIFIC 1

None of the oceanic isolates produced detectable levels of particulate domoic acid (DA) when in prolonged stationary phase due to silicic acid starvation, suggesting that either these strains produce very little or no toxin, or that the physiological conditions required to promote particulate DA production were not met and thus differ from their coastal, toxigenic congeners.

Genetic diversity of Pseudo-nitzschia pungens (Bacillariophyceae) in Borneo, Malaysia

To examine the genetic diversity of P. pungens, the ITS region of rDNA was ampli- fied and unambiguous orthologous structural sequence alignment was subsequently used in genetic population analyses.

Results of this study are in complete agreement with conclusions from previous work using restriction fragment‐length polymorphism analysis of small subunit rRNA genes, but the LSU rDNA sequences provided finer‐scale species and population resolution.
