Eurychasma dicksonii (E.P. Wright) Magnus

CCAP 4018/3
Isolator: Gachon (2006)
Origin: Marine; intertidal, Dunstaffnage, Oban, Scotland
Culture: Medium Provasoli Medium - half strength; Bacteria present; sub; 9-15 ~C; 2-10 µE.m-2.s-1 (higher light intensities seem to inhibit propagation)
Other: Orig. desig. Eurychasma Oban 06-29-7; Eurychasma is a brown alga parasite; original field host = CCAP 1310/300 Ectocarpus sp. The host in which this strain is maintained is Macrocystis pyrifera CCAP 1323/1.; syn. Rhizophydium dicksonii;
