Illustration of Dinophysis acuminate, a dinoflagellate. D. acuminata is a planktonic toxic bloom-forming species. The most extensive blooms have been reported from the summer and fall months. Blooms have been reported from many parts of the world

Illustration of Prorocentrum minimum (Dinoflagellate) . P. minimum is a bloom-forming planktonic species in temperate, brackish waters to tropical regions; mostly estuarine, but also neritic. Due to its small size, often lost or overlooked in field samples. Cells are active swimmers. P. minimum is a toxic species; it produces venerupin (Hepatotoxin) which has caused shellfish poisoning resulting in gastrointestinal illnesses in humans and a number of deaths

Pyrodinium bahamense, considered the sister taxon to Alexandrium, is a tropical euryhaline dinoflagellate found mainly in the Atlantic Ocean. P. bahamense is a major cause of seafood toxicity and cause of paralytic shellfish poisoning, especially in Southeast Asia.
