Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii is a freshwater cyanobacterium of tropical origin, also found in temperate regions. It can produce toxins like cylindrospermopsin (CYN) and saxitoxins (STX, NEO). In 2004, it was detected in three Italian lakes (Albano Lake, Trasimeno Lake and Cedrino Lake). Two of the three examined cases were toxic to a liquid chromatography coupled with tandem spectrometry apparatus (LC-MS/MS), and analysis demonstrated the presence of cylindrospermopsin (CYN).
Formerly C. raciborskii blooms were detected in 1995 (Trasimeno Lake), in 2002 (Albano Lake) and in 2003 (Cedrino Lake), but in those cases no toxicity analysis were performed due to the lack of a standard toxin.
