Description: Metal body with flagella.
Historical Context: "Peridinea comes from 'Peridinium', a dinoflagellate organism. Dinoflagellates are a large group of flagellate protists (having cells with one or more whip-like organelles called flagella). Most are marine plankton, but they are common in fresh water habitats as well. Being primary producers make them an important part of the aquatic food chain. Some species, called zooxanthellae, are endosymbionts (any organism that lives within the body or cells of another organism) of marine animals and protozoa, and play an important part in the biology of coral reefs. Other dinoflagellates are colorless predators on other protozoa, and a few forms are parasitic." -Beverly Seley
