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
