A haptophyte alga bearing hyaline but conspicuous scales was discovered in surface water samples of Shiribeshi Seamount, Japan. X-ray elemental analysis confirmed that silica was the major element in these scales. These scales were hat-shaped, ellipsoidal in top view, 4-6mum wide and 5-7mum long, perforated by several small pores, and were deposited on cells in several layers. Beneath the siliceous scale layers, organic scales were present, which are typical of haptophytes. The cells were non… 
Chrysochromulina andersonii sp. nov. (Prymnesiophyceae), a new flagellate haptophyte symbiotic with radiolarians
ABSTRACT The haptophyte symbiont Chrysochromulina andersonii sp. nov. isolated from the polycystine radiolarian Dictyocoryne truncatum was examined using both natural and cultured materials by light,
Hyalolithus tumescens sp. nov., a siliceous scale-bearing haptophyte from the middle Eocene
Siliceous scales resembling those of the living haptophyte Hyalolithus neolepis Yoshida et al. were discovered in middle Eocene outcrop sediments from the Kellogg Shale in California, and Chalky
Observations on the morphological diversity and distribution of two siliceous nannoplankton genera, Hyalolithus and Petasaria
Scale-bearing siliceous nannoplankton are occasionally encountered in surface seawater samples, but are rarely identified or illustrated. In this study, the morphological diversity of the haptophyte
Coccolithogenesis In Scyphosphaera apsteinii (Prymnesiophyceae)
TLDR
The observations support dynamic metabolic, sensory and cytoskeletal control over the morphology and secretion of polymorphic heterococcolith bearing species, and could be a valuable model to further study coccolithophore calcification and cell physiological responses to ocean acidification.
Chrysochromulina palpebralis sp. nov. (Prymnesiophyceae): a haptophyte, possessing two alternative morphologies
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on the nuclear encoded SSU and LSU ribosomal DNA sequences suggest that C. palpebralis is closely related to some nonsaddle-shaped Chrysochromulina species, clustering with C. polylepis and C. kappa as its closest relatives.
Fine structure and systematics of Prymnesium radiatum sp. nov. (Prymnesiophyceae) from False Bay and Franskraal, South Africa
TLDR
A novel colonial prymnesiophyte from the inshore waters of South Africa, which is reminiscent of the genus Corymbellus, is described at light and electron microscope levels and is considered as a novel species, here named P. radiatum.
Chapter 13 – Haptophyte Algae
TLDR
This chapter proposes the transfer of freshwater Chrysochomulina breviturrita, C. laurentiana, and C. inornata to the genus Prymnesium, thus leaving C. parva as the only valid freshwater species of Chry sochromulina.
Biology and Paleontology of Coccolithophores (Haptophytes)
TLDR
Paleontological studies showed that many fossil lineages had evolutionary size-increasing events in their history, and the size ranges of some fossil species are useful as index fossils for dating of marine sediments.
Multiple origins of Heliozoa from flagellate ancestors: New cryptist subphylum Corbihelia, superclass Corbistoma, and monophyly of Haptista, Cryptista, Hacrobia and Chromista.
TLDR
Microheliella is sister to new superclass Corbistoma, showing that these axopodial protists evolved independently from zooflagellate ancestors, and is grouped as new cryptist subphylum Corbihelia with dense fibrillar interorganellar connections.
Scale Microfossils from the Mid-Neoproterozoic Fifteenmile Group, Yukon Territory
Abstract Microscopic phosphatic scales are found in limestones and cherts from the 812–717 million year old Fifteenmile Group of the Yukon Territory. These enigmatic microfossils, which to date have

Ultrastructure of Chrysochromulina ahrengotii sp. nov. (Prymnesiophyceae), a new saddle-shaped species of Chrysochromulina from Danish coastal waters
TLDR
A new, small, saddle-shaped species of Chrysochromulina with a coiling haptonema is described from Danish coastal waters and bears close morphological resemblance to C. scutellum Eikrem et Moestrup, but differs in details of the scales and in having only one type of spine scale.
Further studies on Nephroselmis and its allies (Prasinophyceae). II. Mamiella gen. nov., Mamiellaceae fam. nov., Mamiellales ord. nov.
TLDR
The marine prasinophycean flagellate presently known as Nephroselmis gilva has been examined, using both the type culture and material from temperate and tropical waters, and the new genus Mamiella is transferred to the new family, Mamiellaceae.
The motile (Crystallolithus hyalinus Gaarder & Markali) and non-motile phases in the life history of Coccolithus pelagicus (Wallich) Schiller
TLDR
Electron micrographs have shown that the holococcoliths from the organism are identical in structure with those from the Crystallolithus hyalinus, which was described in 1956 from preserved material in which the cells lacked the appendages.

Abstract Chrysochromulina spinifera (Fournier) Pienaar et Norris displays a novel feeding mechanism. A water current generated by flagellar movement brings food particles to the cell. These particles
Siliceous structures and silicification in flagellated protists
Flagellated protists produce a diverse range of siliceous structures, such as internal and external skeletons, scales, spines, bristles, cell walls, cyst walls, and loricae. The different groups of
Ultrastructure and reconstruction of the flagellar apparatus architecture in Ankylochrysis lutea (Chrysophyceae, Sarcinochrysidales)
TLDR
The external cell covering and the scale-like structures are unique features of A. lutea and may be diagnosable and diagnose the order Sarcinochrysidales, which is probably a paraphyletic taxon.
Scale structure in Mantoniella squamata, with some comments on the phylogeny of the Prasinophyceae (Chlorophyta)
TLDR
The structure of the spider-web-like scales that cover the flagellar and body surfaces of this organism is described and it is suggested that the scales may be divided into several different morphological types, one form being resricted to the flaginglla and two to the cell body.
Pleurochrysis placolithoides sp. nov. (Prymnesiophyceae), a new marine coccolithophorid with remarks on the status of Cricolith-bearing species
TLDR
It is concluded that two distinct groups of species may be distinguished based on differences in coccolith morphology, and P. placolithoides is shown to be related to Cricosphaera gayraliae.

TLDR
It is hypothesize that P. parvum and P. patelliferum could be stages in the life cycle of a single species and be joined in a sexual life cycle.
