ABSTRACT. Members of the family Warnowiaceae are unarmored phagotrophic dinoflagellates that possess an ocelloid. The genus Erythropsidinium (=Erythropsis) has also developed a unique dynamic appendage, the piston, which is able to independently retract and extend for at least 2 min after the cell lyses. We provide the first small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences of warnowiid dinoflagellates, those of the type Erythropsidinium agile and one species of Warnowia. Phylogenetic analyses show… Expand
Life cycle and molecular phylogeny of the dinoflagellates Chytriodinium and Dissodinium, ectoparasites of copepod eggs.
TLDR
It is suggested that the morphology of the infective cell is probably the most reliable phenotypic characteristic to determine the systematic position of parasitic dinoflagellates and the type of life cycle is a poor criterion for classification at the family level. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the marine dinoflagellate genus Heterodinium (Dinophyceae)
The dinoflagellate genus Heterodinium has unusual morphological characters such as a mid-ventral intercalary plate with a pore, a small plate in the left side of the dorsal epitheca, three antapicalExpand
Taxonomic Clarification of the Unusual Dinophyte Gymnodinium limneticum Wołosz. (Gymnodiniaceae) from the Tatra Mountains.
TLDR
The rarely documented dinophyte Gymnodinium limneticum is presented from its type locality at Lake Morskie Oko in Poland, for which it was established strains and made extensive morphological studies, and two new combinations are proposed. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the sand-dwelling dinoflagellates Amphidiniopsis hirsuta and A. swedmarkii (Peridiniales, Dinophyceae)
TLDR
The first SSU rDNA sequences of two species of Amphidiniopsis, one of the most specious genera of sand-dwelling dinoflagellates, are obtained and the members of the clade are placed in the family Amphidinisopsidaceae, within the Peridiniales. Expand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF DINOPHYSOID DINOFLAGELLATES: THE SYSTEMATIC POSITION OF OXYPHYSIS OXYTOXOIDES AND THE DINOPHYSIS HASTATA GROUP (DINOPHYSALES, DINOPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
The dinophysoid dinoflagellates are currently divided into three families: Amphisoleniaceae, Dinophysaceae, and Oxyphysaceae, but, tentatively, a separate family for the clade of the type and most of the Phalacroma species is proposed. Expand
Balechina and the new genus Cucumeridinium gen. nov. (Dinophyceae), unarmored dinoflagellates with thick cell coverings
TLDR
Molecular phylogeny based on small subunit rRNA gene sequences revealed that Balechina coerulea, G. cucumis and G. lira formed a clade distantly related to the clade of the type species, B. pachydermata, which showed a high morphological variability and was proposed as the new genus Cucumeridinium for the species with longitudinal ridges and a circular apical groove.

Discovery of a New Clade Nested Within the Genus Alexandrium (Dinophyceae): Morpho-molecular Characterization of Centrodinium punctatum (Cleve) F.J.R. Taylor.
TLDR
Investigation of phytoplankton from East China Sea of the Pacific Ocean, offshore Réunion Island of the Indian Ocean, and the French Atlantic coast revealed a species of poorly known armored fusiform dinoflagellate, which phylogenetic analyses placed within the Alexandrium clade, with Alexandrium affine being its closest relative. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the dinoflagellates Podolampas and Blepharocysta (Peridiniales, Dinophyceae)
TLDR
SSU rDNA phylogenies showed that podolampadaceans and Roscoffia formed a well-supported monophyletic group composed of two subclades: one for RoscoFFia and Blepharocysta and one other for Podolampas species. Expand
BARRUFETA BRAVENSIS GEN. NOV. SP. NOV. (DINOPHYCEAE): A NEW BLOOM‐FORMING SPECIES FROM THE NORTHWEST MEDITERRANEAN SEA 1
TLDR
Fatty acids of Barrufeta were more similar to those of Karenia brevis than those obtained from other unarmored analyzed species including three species of Gymnodinium and Akashiwo sanguinea. Expand
Clarifying the taxonomy of Gymnodinium fuscum var. rubrum from Bavaria (Germany) and placing it in a molecular phylogeny of the Gymnodiniaceae (Dinophyceae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic resolution of the molecular DNA-tree provides evidence for a dynamic evolutionary scenario of Gymnodiniaceae and might prove helpful for an improved classification of the group. Expand

CHARACTER EVOLUTION IN POLYKRIKOID DINOFLAGELLATES 1
TLDR
The results demonstrated that “pseudocolonies” in dinoflagellates evolved convergently at least three times independently from different Gymnodinium‐like ancestors: once in haplozoans; once in Ph. beauchampii; and at least once within a lineage containing Ph. kofoidii, P. lebourae. Expand
Morphology and phylogeny of the pseudocolonial dinoflagellates Polykrikos lebourae and Polykrikos herdmanae n. sp.
TLDR
Both the photosynthetic and heterotrophic forms of the only known marine benthic (sand-dwelling) species of Polykrikos, namely P. lebourae, were investigated using light and electron microscopy and molecular phylogenetic analyses, leading to the conclusion that they are in fact two distinct lineages.

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 theExpand

TLDR
Despite the complexity of its organelles, the ocelloid and piston, the competitiveness of Erythropsidinium in the pelagic ecosystem seems to be low. Expand

A novel type of kleptoplastidy in Dinophysis (Dinophyceae): presence of haptophyte-type plastid in Dinophysis mitra.
TLDR
Red-fluorescent, non-phycobilin-containing plastids were found in the heterotrophic dinoflagellate, Dinophysis mitra and it was deduced that Dinophile mitra takes up haptophytes myzocytotically and selectively retains the plastid with surrounding plastidal membranes, whereas other haptophical cell components are degraded.
