From regional or thematic species database
Distribution Dinophysis acuminata is widely distributed from cold to warm waters of both hemispheres. Its presence in the Mediterranean Sea has not been convincingly demonstrated. [details]

Harmful effect The main agent of DSP outbreaks in European Atlantic coasts. Also associated with DSP outbreaks in NE Japan and New Zealand. In recent years, first report of DSP outbreaks associated with blooms of this species in NW (Esenkulova & Haigh 2012) and NE North America (Hattenrath-Lehmann et al. 2012).

Producer of okadaic acid (OA), dinophysis toxins (DTXs)—toxins implicated in DSP outbreaks—and pectenotoxins (PTXs). Some strains appear to produce only PTX (Nielsen et al. 2012), others only OA (Fernández et al. 2001), others DTX1 and PTX2 (Suzuki et al. 2009) or a mixture of OA, DTXs and PTXs (Miles et al. 2004).

1. Strains producing only pectenotoxins:
Denmark: Nielsen et al. 2012.

2. Strains producing only okadaic acid:
Spain: Fernández et al. 2001.

3. Strains producing DTX1 and PTX2
NE Japan: Suzuki et al. 2009

4. A mixture of OA, DTXs and PTXs
Norway: Miles et al. 2004
NE USA: Hackett et al. 2009

D. acuminata and D. acuta are the main DSP toxin producers in Europe (Reguera et al. 2012) [details]

status D. skagii Paulsen has been observed forming couplets with D. acuminata, and is probably a 'small cell' in its life cycle (Reguera & Gonzalez-Gil 2001 and citations therein).
Dinophysis acuminata is widely distributed from cold to warm waters of both hemisphere. Its presence in the Mediterranean Sea has not been convincingly demonstrated. [details]

From other sources
Diet general for group: both heterotrophic (eat other organisms) and autotrophic (photosynthetic) [details]

Distribution neritic, cold to warm temperate regions, worldwide; often present in late spring to summer. [details]

Habitat pelagic [details]

Importance General: known for producing dangerous toxins, particularly when in large numbers, called "red tides" because the cells are so abundant they make water change color. Also they can produce non-fatal or fatal amounts of toxins in predators (particularly shellfish) that may be eaten by humans. [details]

Predators marine microorganisms and animal larvae [details]

Reproduction general for group: both sexual and asexual [details]

Spelling written D. acuminata by Louis et al. (1974) [details]
