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.

Phylogenetic relationships of Pseudo-nitzschia subpacifica (Bacillariophyceae) from the Mexican Pacific, and its production of domoic acid in culture

It is confirmed that P. subpacifica can produce domoic acid (DA), a neurotoxin responsible for the Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning, under P-limited conditions that could be associated with extraordinary oceanographic events such as the 2013–2016 "Blob" in the northeastern Pacific Ocean.

Direct evidence for toxin production by Pseudo-nitzschia plurisecta (Bacillariophyceae) and extension of its distribution area

An amnesic shellfish poisoning risk associated with domoic acid production by the species Pseudo-nitzschia plurisecta is confirmed and the toxin profile is determined, which includes three domeic acid isomers.

Update of the Planktonic Diatom Genus Pseudo-nitzschia in Aotearoa New Zealand Coastal Waters: Genetic Diversity and Toxin Production

This study is the first geographical distribution record of P. arenysensis, P. galaxiae, and P. hasleana in New Zealand coastal waters.

Pseudo-Nitzschia sp (Bacillariophyceae), seasonal distribution in the lagoon of Nador (Morroco)

The goal of this study is to look into the dominance of diatoms, specifically the genus “Pseudo-Nitzschia Sp” at the Nador lagoon level and how it relates to the physicochemical parameters of the

Ecology and seasonality of Pseudo-nitzschia species (Bacillariophyceae) in the northwestern Adriatic Sea over a 30-years period (1988–2020)

The ecology and seasonality of Pseudo-nitzschia species and their contribution to phytoplankton community were analysed for the first time at the coastal station of the LTER-Senigallia-Susak transect from 1988 to 2020 and revealed the presence of several cryptic and pseudo-cryptic species, highlighting the need to combine LM observations with DNA sequence data when the ecology of pseudodelicatissima is investigated.

Differential Influence of Life Cycle on Growth and Toxin Production of three Pseudo‐nitzschia Species (Bacillariophyceae)

Findings reveal a link between P. australis life cycle and cell toxicity and suggest that life cycle dynamics in Pseudo‐nitzschia natural populations may influence bloom toxicity.

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.

Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) species, domoic acid and amnesic shellfish poisoning: revisiting previous paradigms

Gaps in knowledge include further information about the whole genome of Pseudo-nitzschia, mechanisms of DA production and decline, presence or absence of a resting stage, heterotrophic ability, impact of viruses and fungi, and a more complete description of the ecological and physiological roles of DA.

DIVERSITY AND ABUNDANCE OF POTENTIALLY TOXIC PSEUDO-NITZSCHIA PERAGALLO IN AVEIRO COASTAL LAGOON, PORTUGAL AND DESCRIPTION OF A NEW VARIETY, P. PUNGENS VAR. AVEIRENSIS VAR. NOV.

Morphological differences were found between the strains of P. pungens and two other previously described varieties of P., supported by phylogenetic analyses of ITS rDNA sequences, existence of a compensatory base change and mating studies indicate the presence of a separate taxon, which was described as a new variety.

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.

Pseudo-nitzschia pungens var. cingulata var. nov. (Bacillariophyceae) based on field and culture observations

Pseudo-nitzschia cingulata differs from P. pungens with regard to the fine structure of the valve and band striae and the neurotoxin domoic acid was not detected in any of the P. Pungens cultures tested.
