ABSTRACT

A new species of Dinoflagellata – Gymnodinium levanticum Krachm. sp. nov. was found in coastal sandy sediments (HaCarmel Beach, Haifa). The species is characterized by the following features: cells without visible under the light microscope thecal plates, small (26.4–27.7 μm in length and 20.9–21.2 μm in width), dense, yellow-brown, brown, or reddish-brown. Epicone equal or slightly larger than hypocone. Cingulum V-shaped. Hypocone with a small longitudinal protrusion (crest) on dorsal side. The current paper presents the first study of interstitial dinoflagellates of the Eastern Mediterranean coast.
