From regional or thematic species database
Distribution Probably cosmopolitan. It has been recorded from both cold water and warm water areas and from both hemispheres.  [details]

Harmful effect Strains from e.g. Canada, Chile, Denmark and Tunisia has been found to produce domoic acid. The amounts of DA vary from undetectable up to 0.221 pg cell-1. [details]

Morphology P. calliantha belong to the morphological P. pseudodelicatissima-complex, comprising species with narrow valves (ca. 1.5-2.5µm), a central nodule and uniseriate striae.
P. calliantha is mainly characterised by
* narrow valve width: 1.3-1.8µm
* poroids with several sectors (4-10) [details]

Taxonomy P. calliantha has previously been included in P. pseudodelicatissima sensu lato. At least some of the material described as toxic in previous references (as P. pseudodelicatissima) belong to P. calliantha[details]
