While saxitoxin production is usually attributed to Pyrodinium itself, there is also evidence that the synthesis of the neurotoxin is accomplished by various genera of endosymbiotic bacteria within Pyrodinium cells (Azanza et al. bahamense.

Reproduction: Red tide events actually occur from the interplay of factors that include rain and shine, low salinity, a calm sea, warm ocean surface temperatures, the presence of red tide related algae in the waters, and a nutrient-rich landscape nearby. It is the major species involved in the tropical Indo-Pacific red tides. The variety compressum was previously believed to be toxic and confined to the Pacific Ocean, while the variety bahamense was judged nontoxic and confined to the Atlantic Ocean. Unless otherwise noted, all images and text by PE Hargraves A red tide was spotted in the sea off Nan'ao County, in Guangdong Province compressum “is based more on the production of toxins than on morphological details”. Phytoplankton and zooplankton analyses on 12 October 1983 (47 d later), revealed the presence of the dinoflagellate Pyrodinium bahamense var. 878pp. Species Description: The cingulum is displaced on the ventral side by 1.5 times or more of the width of the cingulum (Figures 5, 6 & 7). Sediment cores have shown abundant living cyst populations in surface sediments of Old Tampa Bay and preliminary laboratory experiments using these cysts indicate that they can germinate and survive for several days in the dark. Balech, E. 1995. The variety compressum: (1) has an apical horn, which is broader at the base, less pronounced, and usually lacks a prominent apical spine and list system; (2) is anterior-posteriorly compressed; (3) can form chains of over 30 cells; (4) usually has four apical plates - but can have, or appear to have, five as denoted by an additional thecal crest; (5) does not have the same surface markings as the variety bahamense; and (6) produces a neurotoxin. - Marine Ecology Progress Series 371: 143-153. bahamense in coastal waters of Florida.
