Illegitimate: later homonym of Glenodinium sanguineum (Carter) Diesing. - (5 Feb 2007) - Wendy Guiry

Taxonomic notes
According to Flaim et al. (2004: 742), there are three dinoflagellates in the plankton of Lake Tovel, Italy that resemble G. sanguineum as described by Baldi (1941). None of these belong to Glenodinium as this genus is defined by Loeblich (1980) and Taylor (1987). They also note that: the name G. sanguineum Marchesoni was illegitimate because it had been used already for a different dinoflagellate by Diesing (1866) [G. sanguineum (Carter) Diesing]; the green and red forms ascribed by Baldi to G . sanguineum belong to at least two different species; the red form is very similar but not identical to W. coronata ; the literature is presently being searched for a name for the green form.

General environment
This is a freshwater species.
