Description Cells very large, anterio-posteriorly elongated with two fairly distinctive long antapical and dorsal projections. Ventral side of hypotheca undulate. Dorsal side concave and smoothly continues to the dorsal projection which runs obliquely backwards. The distal end bends at a right angle, carrying a wing-like unabsorbed remnant of the megacytic zone. Six to eight daughter cells often attach at the remnant after asexual cell division. Posterior projections shorter or longer than, or as long as the dorsal process. Angle between the dorsal and posterior projections 50-90”. It starts at the base of the third rib. Anterior cingular list wide, supported by many ribs, forming a narrow funnel-like structure with very low epitheca on the bottom. Thecal plates thick, round or angular areolated. Length: 125- 150 pm.  [details]

Harmful effect Producer of DTX-1 (10 pg/cell) and okadaic acid (5-25 pg/cell), toxins implicated in DSP. Blooms, together with D. caudata, associated with DSP in the Philippines [details]

Identification This species is easily identified by its large cell shape and especially the two projections.  [details]
