Description of Pelagophyceae

provided by BioPedia
Stramenopiles, with chlorophyll a/c plastids; marine and usually microscopic, although a few reach macroscopic size; related to the silicoflagellates, pedinellids and Rhizochromulina; vegetative cells are free-swimming flagellates, planktonic coccoid single cells or attached filamentous, palmelloid and sarcinoid masses. With the exception of zoospore formation, alternate life history stages are unknown.

Pelagophyceae

provided by wikipedia EN

Pelagophyceae is a class of heterokont algae. It is the sister group of Dictyochophyceae.[1]

All known species are marine. They can be single-celled (coccoid or flagellate), palmelloid or filamentous. Some members (Pelagomonas) belong to picoplankton, and some other (Sarcinochrysis) are macroscopic attached organisms.[1]

The class contains 16 species in 13 genera and 2 orders (2017):[2]

It is expected that molecular studies will add more species to this list.[1]

Pelagophyceae: Brief Summary

provided by wikipedia EN

Pelagophyceae is a class of heterokont algae. It is the sister group of Dictyochophyceae.

All known species are marine. They can be single-celled (coccoid or flagellate), palmelloid or filamentous. Some members (Pelagomonas) belong to picoplankton, and some other (Sarcinochrysis) are macroscopic attached organisms.

The class contains 16 species in 13 genera and 2 orders (2017):

order Pelagomonadales family Pelagomonadaceae genus Aureococcus genus Chrysophaeum genus Pelagococcus genus Pelagomonas order Sarcinochrysidales family Sarcinochrysidaceae genus Andersenia genus Ankylochrysis genus Aureoscheda genus Aureoumbra genus Chrysocystis genus Chrysonephos genus Chrysoreinhardia genus Nematochrysopsis genus Sarcinochrysis

It is expected that molecular studies will add more species to this list.
