Q: I am interested in purchasing a start of Tetraselmis chuii. I have looked it up in your system and three strains listed as Tetraselmis sp. come up but none specifically identified as chuii. I am still on the search for a heterotrophically adaptable strain as it turns out that our current strain (maculata) does not seem to be readily adaptable. I suppose I have two questions; 1: Do you have a Tetraselmis chuii strain, 2: if so what kind of lead time would you need if I was to decide to order a start?

A: Any culture listed as sp. has yet to be identified down to the species. As a repository we depend on the depositor to provide all relevant information. That being said, we have a Tetraselmis that is regularly sold to aquaculture facilities, CCMP908. It does grow heterotrophically in our axenic testing under dark discipline.
