Note(s): The dinoflagellate species originally described as Pfiesteria shumwayae Glasgow et Burkholder, recently transferred to a new genus, Pseudopfiesteria Litaker et al., is reclassified into the redefined genus Pfiesteria Steidinger et Burkholder, as Pfiesteria shumwayae within the order Peridiniales. This change is based upon consideration of a compilation of previous and new morphological analyses and molecular phylogenetic analyses. Morphological analysis with scanning and transmission electron microscopy supports previous findings except in the sulcal area.
