||This alga, occurring in Narragansett Bay, was responsible for wide-spread mortalities of populations of mussels and other shellfish. It also was responsible for die-off of strands of the seagrass Zostera marina on Long Island in Great South Bay and Peconic Bay. It is a small, 2.0 to 3.0 (occasionally 5.0 to 8.0) nonflagellated, pale gold colored, spherical cell. It is difficult to distinguish this alga from other picoplankters in a mixed collection under a light microscope, but in electron micrographs it is characterized by an abundant and loose extra-cellular polysaccharide-like material.
