Abstract: The unarmoured dinoflagellate Nusuttodinium aeruginosum retains a kleptochloroplast, which is a transient chloroplast stolen from members of the cryptomonad genus, Chroomonas. Both N.aeruginosum and the closely related N.acidotum have been shown to restrict their diet to a limited number of species of this blue-green genus of cryptophyte. However, it is still unclear how flexible the predators are with regard to the ingestion and utilization of Chroomonas spp. as a source of kleptochloroplast. To address specificity of cryptomonad in N.aeruginosum, we collected the cells of N.aeruginosum from several ponds in Japan, and analysed the phylogeny of the kleptochloroplasts based on their plastidial 16S rDNA sequences. All sequences obtained in this study were restricted to only one (the subclade 4) of four subclades known to comprise the Chroomonas/Hemiselmis clade. Therefore, N.aeruginosum is specific in its dietary requirements, selecting their prey within the subclade level.
