Brief Summary

Read full entry


The Hacrobia is a large group comprising a great diversity of microbial eukaryotes, including flagellates, amoebae, microalgae, and heterotrophs. Two of the subgroups of Hacrobia, cryptomonads and haptophytes are large and well studied lineages of important primary producers, while kataplepharids, centrohelid heliozoa and telonemids are all abundant heterotrophs, primarily in the marine environment. The group was only recently proposed and is based exclusively on molecular data since no single character that unites these groups on the basis of morphology has been identified.
