Notes 
From regional or thematic species database
Trusted: edited by a thematic editorDistribution Dinophysis sacculus is rather common along the Mediterranean and North Atlantic coasts, especially in in semi-enclosed basins, estuaries and lagoons. It has rarely been recorded outside this area. [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorHarmful effect DSP events have been associated with D. sacculus blooms in the Mediterranean basin: the Adriatic Sea (Poletti et al. 1998, Marasovic et al. 1998); Tyrrhenian Sea (Giacobbe et al. 2000); Ebro River Delta on the Catalan coast, Spain (Delgado et al. 1996) [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIdentification Problems of misidentification with D. acuminata were discussed by Zingone et al. (1998) [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorToxicology Producer of okadaic acid, toxin implicated in DSP. OA found both in picked cells and in net hauls rich in this species in Brittany, France (Masselin et al. 1992). Moderate toxicity (traces – 19 pg/cell OA) in HPLC analyses of net hauls rich in this species in the Mediterranean Sea: Spain (Delgado et al. 1996) and Sicily (Giacobbe et al. 2000) [details]
