Subrahmanyan, R (1968) MBAI Memoir No.2: The Dinophyceae of the Indian Seas Part I, Genus Ceratium schrank. Other. Marine Biological Association of India, Cochin.
The author was attracted by the Dinophyceae forms in the plankton collections while working on the plankton Diatoms of the Madras coast almost a quarter of a century ago. The work was commenced in 1943 on the east coast and after a break of three years (1945 - '48) when he had the opportunity to examine material at Plymouth and Port Erin, it was continued on the west coast (1949-1958) and the east coast of India (1959-1962) in the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. As the species of Ceratium are the most conspicuous elements in the sea water among the Dinophyceae, this genus is treated in the present part. Besides the original work of the author, the forms recorded earlier by workers in the Indian Ocean region are also included here. The remaining species of Ceratium are dealt with to cover all the species known so far.
