aphidiopsis curvata. This organism was first identified and classified in 1929, and it's been a problem ever since. R. curvata is a cyanobacteria and produces a number of toxins which can be lethal for certain animal species. Two identified toxins produced by R. curvata are cylindrospermopsin (CYN) and deoxy-cylindrospermopsin (deoxy-CYN), both are toxic to the liver and kidneys.
