    Hmm. Somebody read a note on the internet based on third hand scientific reporting. Then put it in a crossword.

    See this paper: http://cdn.intechopen.com/pdfs-wm/41950.pdf It is a review of indicator algal species. There are lots of them.
    Hundreds. If you can get the first letter, it should be 'findable' in the above citation. Unless the crossword creator used a common name. If that is true, I would give up now.

    This is definitely an innovative crowdsourcing kind of question. Ask the crowd that might know.

    I have already searched this paper, but this paper doesn't quenches my thirst. Please try something else. Well, thanks for your efforts.
