From regional or thematic species database
Distribution 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]

Harmful 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]

Identification Problems of misidentification with D. acuminata were discussed by Zingone et al. (1998) [details]

Toxicology 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]
