Description Cells of Prorocentrum caipirignum are elliptical, 37–44 mm long and 29–36 mm wide. Both the thecal surface and intercalary bands are smooth. The thecal plates have a line of marginal pores and scattered pores except in the center which is devoid of pores. The pores can be circular but in most cases are elongated or kidney-shaped. The periflagellar area has a V shape on the right thecal plate without or with a low collar on the left thecal plate. It is composed of 6 platelets that leave place for a flagellar and an accessory pore and has no spines. The nucleus is posterior. Cells are photosynthetic and have branched and reticulated chloroplasts that surround two central pyrenoids. Identification requires scanning electron microscopy and/or molecular sequencing. [details]

Harmful effect Okadaic acid and prorocentrolide producer (Nascimento et al. 2017). [details]

Identification The species belongs to the P. lima complex and can only reliably identified by its barcodes.
Verified rDNA sequences (LSU, ITS) are: KY039500, KJ960192, KY039499
