Taxonomic notes
Moestrup & Calado (2018: 107): "Gymnodinium limneticum was recently obtained in culture from the Tatra Mountains and studied by Kretschmann et al. (2015). Based on molecular data, G. limneticum and G. palustre were in the article transferred to Spiniferodinium T. Horiguchi & Chihara 1987, a genus of benthic marine dinoflagellates from the Pacific (Kretschmann et al. 2015). As mentioned by Kretschmann et al. (2015), the phylogenetic relationship between the two species and Spiniferodinium is not a close one, based on molecular data, and morphologically the two species, as presently known, share little resemblance to the two species of Spiniferodinium presently described. While there is no doubt that the two species will eventually be removed from Gymnodinium, it is not clear to which genus or genera they will eventually be moved to." - (17 Oct 2018) - M.D. Guiry
