  All About Dinoflagellates
Dinoflagellates possess two flagella, one (the transverse flagellum) may be contained in a groove-like structure around the equator of the organism (the cingulum), providing forward motion and spin to the dinoflagellate, the other (the longitudinal flagellum) trailing behind providing little propulsive force, mainly acting as a rudder.
Dinoflagellates are classified as Protists within the division Dinoflagellata, most of the members of this division are charcterised by having, during at least one part of their life cycle, a motile stage with two dissimilar flagella.
Dinoflagellates are commonly studied during their motile, planktonic stage; cyst-forming dinoflagellates are known from all oceanic habitats but they dominate in shallow coastal waters where the cysts may seed oceanic populations.
