BLANK is a division of unicellular algae that is represented by the dinoflagellates.

These include the “red tide” organism, BLANK BLANK, that occurs in the US in the Pacific coast, New England, and the Gulf Coast.

Some red tide organisms produce large quantities of toxins such as BLANK, which disrupt proper function of ion channels in neurons.

Shellfish are tested for this and other toxins produced like BLANK and BLANK.

What is a phylum of unicellular algae that lives in fresh water environments, lack cell walls, and have an outer pellicle?

What is the most common genus? What are their "stigmata" for?

This genus stores food as a unique polysaccharide called BLANK.

Euglena, which have special eyespots known as “stigmata” that act a light shield, sense light and respond to it.
