Strain Information: 940/2

Division/Phylum: Haptophyta/Prymnesiophyta    Class: Pavlovophyceae    Order: Pavlovales


Pavlova sp.

CCAP 940/2
Isolator: Green (1966)
Origin: Marine; nr. Madeira, Atlantic Ocean
Culture: Medium f/2; Bacteria present; sub
Other: Plymouth 471; renamed as Pavlova sp. October 2013 after sequencing suggested this strain is not P. pinguis. The sequences are identical to those of CCAP 940/1B P. gyrans, indicating a possible mix-up at some point.; formerly listed as Pavlova pinguis Green (1967);
