Sister taxa: Palaeozoic nannofossils, hidden, Haptophytes, Parmales, Silicoflagellates, scales and miscellaneous, Dinophytes, Diatoms, Zooplankton groups, Ascidian spicules, Crystals and crud,

Daughter taxa: (blue => in age window 0-300Ma) Granddaughter taxa


Notes & discussion: Silicoflagellates have a long and diverse fossil record (e.g. Perch-Nielsen 1985), at present only the extant species are included here but there is the potential to extend coverage to fossil silicoflagellates.
