Description:
Unarmored dinoflagellates. The apical groove is circular, encircling the apex and connecting with the anterior sulcus. The cell surface is smooth, lacking ridges or striae, and with a hyaline amphiesma comprising polygonal vesicles. The cytoplasm may retract leaving behind a hyaline membrane. The dinokaryotic nucleus lacks the perinuclear capsule. A reddish-orange pigmented body or eyespot is absent. Cells are solitary, or sometimes forming a two-celled colony.
