Thecal Morphology of Ornithocercus Magnificus (Dinoflagellata) with Notes on Related Species
Abstract:Detailed descriptions of the thecal plates of Ornithocercus magnificus are given. Though a few differences in structural detail are disclosed, the number and general arrangement of these plates are the same as those of Ornithocercus thurni. Species in the family Ornithocercidae which are rare or previously unreported from the Gulf of Mexico include six in the genus Omithocercus, eight in Histioneis and one in Parahistioneis. Figures are included for all species found. Synonymies and general descriptions are given for those which differ from previously described specimens.
