Abstract

A picophytoplankton has been isolated from the western channel of the Korea Strait. The cell was isolated by dilution method. It is about 2 ${\mu}m$ in diameter and has smooth surface. Organelles of nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondrion, Golgi body, pyrenoids, vacuoles and lipid bodies are identified. Pigments are composed of chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b, ${\beta}$-carotene and other xanthophylls. Based on the ultrastructural features and pigment composition, it may belong to chlorococcalean picoplankton.
