Description of Tetraselmis

Cells more or less compressed, often slightly curved but never twisted, cells cordiform, elliptic or almost spherical; similar to Scherffelia but differing in cell shape and in the presence of a single chloroplast (very rarely two), a pyrenoid and an eyespot; aexual reproduction as in Scherffelia, thick-walled cysts known in several species, but sexuality not reported, fairly speciose, in both freshwater and marine biota, some species in plankton, others benthic in green sand, or in symbiosis with metazoa, e.g. the turbellarian Convoluta roscoffensi.

Tetraselmis

Tetraselmis is a genus of phytoplankton. Tetraselmis has a very high lipid level; their amino acids stimulate feeding in marine organisms.[citation needed] Tetraselmis is green, motile, and usually grows 10 µm long x 14 µm wide.

The species T. convolutae is a symbiont of the acoelomate animal Symsagittifera roscoffensis (and can also live freely in the ocean).[1]
