Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorLSID urn:lsid:algaebase.org:taxname:47033 [details]

From regional or thematic species database
Trusted: edited by a thematic editorDiet general for group: both heterotrophic (eats other organisms) and autotrophic (photosynthetic) [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorDistribution Widely distributed in cold to temperate coastal waters of the Northern Hemisphere. [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorDistribution Cold-temperate water species. Forms very dense blooms in the Baltic Sea associated with the pycnocline (Carpenter et al. 1995)
Very dense blooms in eastern Canada associated with mild DSP outbreaks (Subba Rao et al. 1993).
 [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorHarmful effect HPLC analyses of Norwegian strains in Lee et al. (1989) had OA (0-0.8) and DTX1 (2.5-14 pg/cell), but HPLC analyses of net hauls with dominance of D. norvegica revealed high content of OA (32.6 + 5 pg/cell) (Cembella 1989).
Most recent analyses by LC-MS have shown that Norwegian strains had PTX2 (0.3-2 pg/cell) and PTX12 (0.1-20.4 pg/cell), and in some cases, traces of OA (Miles et al. 2004).
Japanese strains only contained high levels of PTX2 (51-67 pg/cell) (Suzuki et al. 2009).

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorToxicology Toxic strains known from Europe and North America.

EUROPE

Denmark: (Emsholm et al. 1996)
Norway:(Dahl & Yndestad 1985; Aune et al. 1996, low toxicity)
Sweden: (Edler 2002)
UK: (Bresnan et al. 2002)

AMERICA

Canada: (Subba Rao et al. 1993; Todd et al. 1993)

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution neritic, cold water species [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat pelagic [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorImportance 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]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorPredators marine microorganisms and animal larvae [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorReproduction general for group: both sexual and asexual [details]
