MORPHOLOGICAL SEPARATION OF THE EUGLENOID GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) BASED ON LORICA DEVELOPMENT AND POSTERIOR STRIP REDUCTION 1
Two sets of morphological characters, lorica development and pellicle strip reduction, support the separation of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as distinct genera.
PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES BASED UPON COMBINED SSU AND LSU RDNA SEQUENCE COMPARISONS AND DESCRIPTION OF DISCOPLASTIS GEN. NOV. (EUGLENOPHYTA) 1
This study demonstrated that increased taxon sampling, multiple genes, and combined data sets provided increased support for internal nodes on the euglenoid phylogenetic tree and resolved relationships among the major genera in the photosynthetic eUGlenoid lineage.
PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENOID LORICATE GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) INFERRED FROM NUCLEAR SSU AND LSU rDNA 1
The morphological and molecular data supported the retention of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as separate loricate genera.

The addition of the LSU rDNA dataset to the euglenophyte phylogeny supports the view that the genera Euglena, Lepocinclis and Phacus are not monophyletic and substantiates the existence of several well-supported clades.
ARE CYTOPLASMIC POCKETS (MTR/POCKET) PRESENT IN ALL PHOTOSYNTHETIC EUGLENOID GENERA?1
Three alternative hypotheses of the origin of MTR/pockets in phototrophic euglenoids are presented and discussed, and the presence of this complex in representatives of all the major photosynthetic genera is demonstrated.
12 Phylogeny of the euglenoid loricate genera trachelomonas and strombomonas based on morphological and molecular data
The combined morphological and molecular data support the retention of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as separate genera.
