It took some literature searching to find anything on this, 
and I many not be correct, but it may be that 
Chrysochromulina produces a toxin related to the 
prymnesins. It appears that most work on them has been done 
in Japan.  Check on Igarashi,T. Jol. American Chem. Society 
118(2), 479-80, 1996.    If my information is incorrect,
I would appreciate knowing what the correct toxin is, when you find
out.       Tom McCloud
