Since the separation of the Trachelomonas Ehrenberg subgroup “Saccatae” into a new genus, Strombomonas Deflandre (1930) , there has been some question as to its validity. Deflandre's separation was based entirely on characteristics of the lorica, including the shape of the lorica, the lack of a distinctive collar, possession of a tailpiece, lack of ornamentation, and the ability of Strombomonas species to aggregate particles on the surface of the lorica. Recent molecular analyses indicated that… 

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.

Phylogeny of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas (Euglenaceae) Based on Morphological and Molecular Data

It was found that the shape of the loricae and the presence or absence of thecollar were relatively stable in culture, while the length of the collar presence or presence of spines and the color of theLoricae changed, which supported Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as independent genera.

Contemporary integrative taxonomy for sexually deprived protists: A case study of Trachelomonas (Euglenaceae) from western Ukraine

Biological material was used to epitypify three names of Trachelomonas, eternally linking morphology with reliable genetic information, one of the powerful methods to clarify ambiguous scientific names, which has particular importance in character‐poor protists such as the euglenophytes.

Phylogeny and Classification of Euglenophyceae: A Brief Review

This article summarizes recent advances in the phylogeny and classification of the phototrophic euglenids, aiming at understanding the situation of the group within the phylum Euglenozoa, as well as its evolutionary relationships and the changes in its taxonomic classification.

Guanchochroma wildpretii gen. et spec. nov. (Ochrophyta) Provides New Insights into the Diversification and Evolution of the Algal Class Synchromophyceae

A new relative of the chrysophyte genus Chrysopodocystis was found in Tenerife and termed Guanchochroma wildpretii, and evidence for the sequence of events leading to the formation of the plastid complex of Synchromophyceae still remains ambiguous because of the apparently short timeframe in which they occurred.

PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES INFERRED FROM PLASTID LSU rDNA SEQUENCES 1

The EuglENA clade formed a monophyletic lineage comprising most species from taxa formerly allocated to the subgenera Calliglena and Euglena, however, within this genus, none of the sub genera was monophyletsic.

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.

MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC EUGLENOIDS AND NEW FAMILY, PHACACEAE (EUGLENALES) 1

The family Euglenaceae is proposed to be limited to the members of the Euglena clade and a new family, the Phacaceae, to house the genera Phacus, Lepocinclis, and Discoplastis is proposed.

New taxa of loricate euglenoids Strombomonas and Trachelomonas from Thailand

Five new species and one new variety of loricate euglenoid taxa were discovered in Thailand and it is proposed to raise the variety to species level (T. paucispinosa Prowse).

EVOLUTION OF PHACUS (EUGLENOPHYCEAE) AS INFERRED FROM PELLICLE MORPHOLOGY AND SSU rDNA

The utility of pellicle morphology for inferring phylogenetic relationships of euglenids and establishing apomorphy‐based clade definitions was demonstrated and three robust clades with unambiguous pellicles‐based apomorphies can be recognized within taxa traditionally classified as Phacus.

It is suggested that a SEM study of the variation in the lorica surface in clonal material will lead to a recognition of polymorphism and eventually to a clearer understanding of taxonomic entities described from natural collections.

The thickenings on the posterior, concave margins of the pellicular strips suggest that this pellicle is of intermediate complexity between those of Euglena spirogyra (Ehrenb. and Trachelomonas volvocina).

PHYLOGENY OF EUGLENOPHYCEAE BASED ON SMALL SUBUNIT rDNA SEQUENCES: TAXONOMIC IMPLICATIONS 1

Small subunit rDNA sequences of 42 taxa belonging to 10 genera were used to infer phylogenetic relationships among euglenoids and the strong support for the individual clades confirmed the value of using lorica features as taxonomic criteria.

The purpose of the present paper is to discuss the general biology of the euglenoids and to cite enough references to the widely scattered literature so that available detailed information may easily be found.

OBSERVATIONS ON SOME SPECIES OF TRACHELOMONAS GROWN IN CULTURE

The genus Trachelomonas Ehrbg. is so well characterized that there is hardly any species the generic position of which is doubtful. The most conspicuous feature is the envelope enclosing a cell body

Phylogeny and taxonomic revision of plastid-containing euglenophytes based on SSU rDNA sequence comparisons and synapomorphic signatures in the SSU rRNA secondary structure.

Sequence comparisons and a revised classification of the Euglenophyceae were based on 92 new SSU rDNA sequences obtained from strains of Euglena, Astasia, Phacus, Trachelomonas, Colacium, Cryptoglena, Lepocinclis, EUTreptia, Eutreptiella and TetreutrePTia, and one lineage was recognized as the previously neglected genus Monomorphina Mereschkowsky (1877).
