Trusted: edited by a thematic editorHarmful effect DSP outbreaks associated with blooms of D. caudata, often accompanying other dominant Dinophysis species have been reported from Europe, America, Asia and Australia. However, it is difficult to evaluate the contribution of D. caudata to the toxic outbreak. E.g.: outbreaks of D. acuminata together with D. caudata in the first DSP report from northern Argentina (Sar et al. 2011); with D. miles in the Philippines (Marasigan et al. 2001).

OA (7.9 - 56.5 pg/cell) and DTX1 (7.2 – 53.9 pg/cell) in picked cells from the Philippines analyzed by HPLC (Marasigan et al. 2001). Pectenotoxin-2 (PTX2) in cells from the Iberian Peninsula, LC-MS analyses (Fernández et al. 2001, 2006).

This latter species is morphologically different but several authors report it as 'small cells' in the life cycle of D. caudata and D. tripos (Reguera et al. 1990, 1995; Moita & Sampayo 1993; Reguera & Gonzalez-Gil 2001; Reguera et al. 2007). [details]
