Taxonomic notes
Moestrup & Calado (2018: 109) note: "the name G. mirabile is given in several floras as a synonym of Gymnodinium uberrimum (G. J. Allman) Kofoid & Swezy. However, the original description of Peridinium uberrimum G. J. Allman, on which G. uberrimum was based, shows several aspects that suggest a woloszynskioid rather than a species of Gymnodinium (Hansen & Flaim 2007; Pandeirada et al. 2013)." - (17 Oct 2018) - M.D. Guiry
