From regional or thematic species database
Trusted: edited by a thematic editorHarmful effect The toxicity of this species is questionable. Cultures identified as P. concavum Fukuyo were subsequently found to be Prorocentrum maculosum (see Zhou & Fritz 1993, Phycologia 32: 444-450), and as P. hoffmannianum, strain SIU 882a (see Aikman et al. 1993). According to Fukuyo (pers. comm. to Elbrächter, Nov. 1999), toxins have not been analysed unequivocally from Prorocentrum concavum. Quod et al. (1995) found that crude methanol extract are not toxic to mice. [details]
