I am looking for about species of microalgae with the highest known carbon density.

Specifically, I am looking for the highest carbon to volume and carbon to weight ratios when the algae is completely desiccated (i.e., dried without extracting oils, etc.). (Note: These can be two different species.)

The question relates to carbon in its elemental form, not the volume or weight of the chemicals in which it is bound, such as organic compounds.
