Abstract
    A new species of Tetraselmis, T. indica Arora & Anil, was isolated from nanoplankton collected from salt pans in Goa (India) and is described based on morphological, ultrastructural, 18S rRNA gene sequence and genome size data. The species is characterized by a distinct eyespot, rectangular nucleus, a large number of Golgi bodies, two types of flagellar pit hairs and a characteristic type of cell division. In nature, the species was found in a wide range of temperatures (48°C down to 28°C) and salinities, from hypersaline (up to 350 psu) down to marine (c. 35 psu) conditions. Phylogenetic analysis based on 18S rDNA sequence data showed that T. indica is most closely related to unidentified Tetraselmis strains from a salt lake in North America.
