Dinoflagellate taxonomy is based primarily on morphology and morphometric data that can be difficult to obtain. In contrast, molecular data can be rapidly and cost‐effectively acquired, which has led to a rapid accumulation of sequence data in GenBank. Currently there are no systematic criteria for utilizing taxonomically unassigned sequence data to identify putative species that could in turn serve as a basis for testable hypotheses concerning the taxonomy, diversity, distribution, and… 

Using RDNA sequences to define dinoflagellate species

TLDR
Examination of rDNA molecular phylogenies from over 473 manuscripts showed the D1-D3 rDNA and ITS phylogenies in combination are capable of identifying 97% of dinoflagellate species including all the species belonging to the genera Alexandrium, Ostreopsis and Gambierdiscus, although it should be noted that multi-gene phylogenies are preferred for inferring relationships among these species.

Molecular species discovery in the diatom Sellaphora and its congruence with mating trials

TLDR
Investigation of the species limits of morphologically similar small-celled strains of the model diatom Sellaphora from the United Kingdom and Australia finds no simple metrics or presence/absence characters that could consistently separate all species of the auldreekie complex, even though some do differ in pole width or stria density.

Evaluating the Ribosomal Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) as a Candidate Dinoflagellate Barcode Marker

TLDR
The Internal Transcribed Spacer units 1 and 2 of the rDNA operon were evaluated, as a high resolution marker for distinguishing species dinoflagellates in culture, and the ITS marker was successful in confirming species, revealing hidden diversity in culture collections.

Barcoding of diatoms: nuclear encoded ITS revisited.

Integrated study of dinoflagellate diversity in the Gulf of Naples

Dinoflagellates are a diverse lineage of protists known as an essential component of marine planktonic communities. To study their seasonal diversity at the LTER-MC station in the Gulf of Naples, I

Recent evolutionary diversification of a protist lineage.

TLDR
It is concluded that the studied dinoflagellates belong to a lineage which has diversified recently and spread, sometimes over long distances, across low-temperature environments which differ markedly in ecology (marine versus lacustrine communities) and salinity.

DISCRIMINATIVE POWER OF NUCLEAR rDNA SEQUENCES FOR THE DNA TAXONOMY OF THE DINOFLAGELLATE GENUS PERIDINIUM (DINOPHYCEAE) 1

TLDR
18S and 28S rDNA D1/D2 sequences are informative about relationships among Peridinium species, suggesting that the former as DNA markers may be more suitable for sequence‐based delimitation of Perid inium.

Phylogenetic Relationships of Yessotoxin-Producing Dinoflagellates, Based on the Large Subunit and Internal Transcribed Spacer Ribosomal DNA Domains

TLDR
It is indicated that Gonyaulacoloid dinoflagellate species are the most likely to produce YTX and thus should be prioritized for YTX screening during events.

TLDR
The grouping of haplotypes in a series of distinct clades suggests the existence of cryptic species within what has previously been considered a single species, based on the morphological features of the motile cells and cysts.
