Previous studies using the nuclear SSU rDNA and partial LSU rDNA have demonstrated that the euglenoid loricate taxa form a monophyletic clade within the photosynthetic euglenoid lineage. [...] Key Method In order to determine the relationships among the loricate taxa, SSU and LSU nuclear rDNA sequences were obtained for eight Strombomonas and 25 Trachelomonas strains and combined in a multigene phylogenetic analysis.Expand
Reconstructing euglenoid evolutionary relationships using three genes: nuclear SSU and LSU, and chloroplast SSU rDNA sequences and the description of Euglenaria gen. nov. (Euglenophyta).
TLDR
Combining datasets resolved the relationships among ten genera of photosynthetic euglenoids by using Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian analyses of three genes, nuclear SSU and LSU rDNA, and chloroplast SSU (cpSSU) rDNA. Expand
MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC EUGLENOIDS AND NEW FAMILY, PHACACEAE (EUGLENALES) 1
TLDR
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. Expand
Intrageneric Variability Between the Chloroplast Genomes of Trachelomonas grandis and Trachelomonas volvocina and Phylogenomic Analysis of Phototrophic Euglenoids
TLDR
The phylogenomic analysis with 84 genes of 19 phototrophic euglenoids and 18 cpGenome sequences from Chlorophyta and Streptophyta resulted in a well‐supportedcpGenome phylogeny, which is in accordance to former phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Cryptic Speciation in the Genus Cryptoglena (Euglenaceae) Revealed by Nuclear and Plastid SSU and LSU rRNA Gene
TLDR
Three new species are proposed based on specific molecular signatures and gene divergence of the nr SSU rDNA sequences of Cryptoglena, including C. soropigra, C. similis, and C. longisulca. Expand
Taxon-rich multigene phylogeny of the photosynthetic euglenoids (Euglenophyceae)
TLDR
To establish taxonomy and understand phylogenetic relationships among strains and species of the photosynthetic euglenoids, phylogenetic analyses based on a four gene sequence dataset from 343 taxa from 343Taxa were performed. Expand
Intrageneric chloroplast genome comparison in the genus Euglena (Phylum: Euglenophyta) with annotated chloroplast genomes of Euglena hiemalis and Euglena clara
TLDR
A conserved intrageneric cpGenome for Euglena species is revealed and is largely similar in gene content, conserved gene clusters (operons), and G + C/A’+’T percentage to previously published EuglENA cpGenomes. Expand
Non-pollen palynomorphs notes: 3. Phototrophic loricate euglenoids in paleoecology and the effect of acetolysis on Trachelomonas loricae
TLDR
A review of recent algological literature supports Trachelomonas being a good indicator of organic pollution as well as other eutrophication indicators such as cyanobacteria and ciliate Codonella cratera. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Morphological Character Evolution of Photosynthetic Euglenids (Excavata) Inferred from Taxon‐rich Analyses of Five Genes
TLDR
This research indicated that pyrenoids were lost twice during the evolution of phototrophic euglenids, and that mucocysts, which only occur in the genus Euglena, evolved independently at least twice. Expand
Contemporary integrative taxonomy for sexually deprived protists: A case study of Trachelomonas (Euglenaceae) from western Ukraine
TLDR
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. Expand
TAXONOMY OF THE PHACUS OSCILLANS (EUGLENACEAE) AND ITS CLOSE RELATIVES—BALANCING MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR FEATURES 1
TLDR
The establishment of epitypes (together with emended diagnoses) for seven species of Phacus Dujard are established by literature studies, verification of morphological diagnostic features (cell size, cell shape), as well as molecular characters (SSU rDNA). Expand

PHYLOGENY OF EUGLENOPHYCEAE BASED ON SMALL SUBUNIT rDNA SEQUENCES: TAXONOMIC IMPLICATIONS 1
TLDR
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. Expand
Phylogenetic analyses of various euglenoid taxa (euglenozoa) based on 18s rdna sequence data
TLDR
All trees derived from SSU rRNA data strongly supported the monophyletic origin of the Euglenozoa, with kinetoplastids as sister clade to the euglenoids and Petalomonas cantuscygni Cann et Pennick diverging at the base of the monophysletic eUGlenoid lineage. Expand
Phylogeny and taxonomic revision of plastid-containing euglenophytes based on SSU rDNA sequence comparisons and synapomorphic signatures in the SSU rRNA secondary structure.
TLDR
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).

MORPHOLOGICAL SEPARATION OF THE EUGLENOID GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) BASED ON LORICA DEVELOPMENT AND POSTERIOR STRIP REDUCTION 1
TLDR
Two sets of morphological characters, lorica development and pellicle strip reduction, support the separation of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as distinct genera. Expand
PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES BASED UPON COMBINED SSU AND LSU RDNA SEQUENCE COMPARISONS AND DESCRIPTION OF DISCOPLASTIS GEN. NOV. (EUGLENOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
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. Expand
Phylogeny of the photosynthetic euglenophytes inferred from the nuclear SSU and partial LSU rDNA.
TLDR
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. Expand
Phylogenetic position and inter-relationships of the osmotrophic euglenids based on SSU rDNA data, with emphasis on the Rhabdomonadales (Euglenozoa).
TLDR
The inter-relationship of the three distinct euglenozoan taxa (euglenids, kinetoplastids and diplonemids) could not be convincingly resolved by this study. Expand

The combined data set produced several additional well‐supported clades, not encountered before in the analyses of green euglenoids, there are three main well‐defined clades (A, B/C/D, and G) on trees from the combinedData set. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of phagotrophic, photomorphic and osmotrophic euglenoids by using the nuclear 18S rDNA sequence.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of 35 strains carried out using the SSU rDNA suggest that neither the Euglenales nor the Eutreptiales form a monophyletic lineage, thus questioning currently available classifications. Expand

TLDR
Developmental patterns of plastid replication also suggest that these five taxa share recent common ancestry with members of the genus Euglena subgenus Calliglena. Expand
