Abstract

Gloeodinium montanum forms motile cells identical to Hemidinium nasutum. The cells of Hemidinium may act as gametes or zoospores. Fusion takes place during the dark phase of the light-dark cycle. The resulting zygote encysts as the Gloeodinium stage within 24 hours. It enlarges tremendously and divides; the division is thought to be meiotic.
