Gymnodinium verruculosum 

Size 10um base width, 6µ top width, 18µ long. Total volume 716 cubic microns. The rugose surface appearance of this species makes it easy to identify. Collected from Rhode River and Chesapeake Bay. There is some thought as to G. verruculosum being toxic, but nothing was found to corroborate this idea.
