Morphology: The dominant stage consists of motile cells that are round to ovate in shape with a slight ventral compression. The brownish-green plastid is parietal and flagella are ventrally inserted near a red eyespot. The anterior flagellum possesses hairs but no knob scales ; the posterior flagellum is naked. Both flagella exhibit a small distal attenuation and the haptonema is not always visible, but is present. The eyespot is composed of osmiophilic globules on the external face of the plastid adjacent to the posterior flagellum , which has a swelling with a distinctive regular striations as described for the type strain of D. vlkianum. The plastid has parallel thylakoid lamellae and does not possess a pyrenoid. [Bendif et al. 2011]
