Peridinium lomnickii Woloszynska was investigated by scanning electron microscopy with special attention to the importance of development of thecal plate during the life cycle. Different life cycle stages (gymnodinoid-, glenodinoid-, peridinioid) are described on the basis of development of cell wall, presence and development of sutures, appearance of pore and the change of the cell shape. Differences and possible relationships between the three existing varieties of the species are discussed. We suggest that the three varieties of P. lomnickii, P. lomnickii var. lomnickii, P. lomnickii var. wierzejskii and P. lomnickii var. splendida, represent the different life cycle stages of the species. These results and the known ontogenic cycle of dinophyta taxa should be taken into consideration, when a phylogenic tree of the dinophytes is constructed.
