Nannotax3 - ntax_non_cocco - Phaeocystales

Phaeocystales

Variant: Phaeocystales is regarded here as a variant of Haptophytes.
I.e. It is a subjective junior synonym, but some workers many find it useful for some studies (e.g. experienced biostratigraphers working with abundant, well preserved material), but for most purposes differentiating it is not reccomended.

Original description: Swimming cells with two more or less equal flagella and a short, noncoiling haptonema; chloroplasts 1-4, parietal; cell body covered with flat scales of two sizes.
