taxa notes A freshwater cyanobacterium. This bacterium is an aquatic photosynthetic bacteria belonging to the phylum Cyanobacteria. They are composed of chained filaments known as trichomes that can show variation in morphology, varying from about 50–300 micrometers in length.[1] These bacteria can also produce a thick walled, cylindrical, spore like structure known as Akinetes, which also demonstrate variation in morphology Some strains of this species are able to produce several toxins which affect humans: cylindrospermopsin, anatoxin-a and saxitoxin
