Sequences of the nuclear encoded small subunit (SSU) rRNA were determined for Pirsonia diadema, P. guinardiae, P. punctigerae, P. verrucosa, P. mucosa and three newly isolated strains 99-1, 99-2, 99-S. Based on phylogenetic analysis all Pirsonia strains, except P. mucosa, clustered together in one clade, most closely related to Hyphochytrium catenoides within the group of stramenopiles. However, P. mucosa was most closely related to Cercomonas sp. SIC 7235 and Heteromita globosa and belongs to… Expand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of a marine interstitial tetraflagellate with putative endosymbionts: Auranticordis quadriverberis n. gen. et sp. (Cercozoa)
TLDR
The discovery and characterization of A. quadriverberis underscores how poorly the authors understand the diversity of cercozoans and, potentially, represents one of the few independent cases of primary endosymbiosis within the Cercozoa and beyond. Expand
Placement of the unclassified Cyranomonas australis Lee 2002 within a novel clade of Cercozoa.
TLDR
These findings suggest that C. australis may not belong to any previously described family within Filosa and Cercozoa, and form a clade with strong statistical supports, here called novel clade CU (Cyranomonas plus Uncultured eukaryotes). Expand
Dinoflagellate, Euglenid, or Cercomonad? The Ultrastructure and Molecular Phylogenetic Position of Protaspis grandis n. sp.
TLDR
The SSU rDNA phylogeny demonstrated a very close relationship between the benthic P. grandis n. Expand
Olpidiopsis bostrychiae sp. nov.: an endoparasitic oomycete that infects Bostrychia and other red algae (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenies inferred from SSU rRNA gene and COII amino acid sequences showed that O. bostrychiae branched before the main saprolegnialean and peronosporalean lineages within the monophyletic oomycetes, supporting the decision to name an additional Olpidiopsis species that is parasitic on red algae. Expand
Novel Widespread Marine Oomycetes Parasitising Diatoms, Including the Toxic Genus Pseudo-nitzschia: Genetic, Morphological, and Ecological Characterisation
TLDR
Using single-cell techniques, morphologically and molecularly, intracellular parasitoids infecting four potentially toxin-producing Pseudo-nitzschia and one Melosira species on the North Atlantic coast are characterise and called for investigation of their phenology, evolution, and potential contribution in controlling their host spatial-temporal dynamics. Expand
Rhizarian ‘Novel Clade 10’ Revealed as Abundant and Diverse Planktonic and Terrestrial Flagellates, including Aquavolon n. gen.
TLDR
Screening of a wide range of environmental DNA extractions with lineage‐specific PCR primers reveals that Aquavolonida consists of a large radiation of protists, which are most diversified in freshwater planktonic habitats and as yet undetected in marine environments. Expand
The twilight of Sarcodina: a molecular perspective on the polyphyletic origin of amoeboid protists
TLDR
Although the molecular data clearly indicate that the pseudopodial structures have been developed several times in the history of eukaryotes, they also show that a large diversification of amoeboid protists occurred only twice, in lineages leading to Amoebozoa and Rhizaria. Expand
Heterokont Predator Develorapax marinus gen. et sp. nov. – A Model of the Ochrophyte Ancestor
TLDR
It is proposed that members of the Developea clade represent a model for transition from bacterivory to a predatory feeding mode by selection for larger prey, and has likely occurred in the ochrophyte ancestor. Expand
The systematic position of the parasitoid marine dinoflagellate Paulsenella vonstoschii (Dinophyceae) inferred from nuclear-encoded small subunit ribosomal DNA.
TLDR
In the phylogenetic tree, Paulsenella diverged after Amyloodinium ocellatum but prior to Pfiesteria and the cryptoperidiniopsoids, which suggests that Paulsenlla also belongs to the order Peridiniales and its earlier description as gymnodinioid and athecate has to be revised. Expand
3 Systematics of the Straminipila: Labyrinthulomycota, Hyphochytriomycota, and Oomycota
TLDR
Morphological characteristics associated with zoosporogenesis and sexual reproduction are discussed in relation to the revised phylogenetic framework and a possible evolutionary timeline based on both molecular and fossil evidence is discussed. Expand

Evidence for multiple species within the endoparasitic dinoflagellate Amoebophrya ceratii as based on 18S rRNA gene-sequence analysis
TLDR
The hypothesis that A. ceratii comprises more than one species is supported, and this opens the possibility that infections of harmful algal species might involve more thanOne Amoebophrya species. Expand
Parvilucifera infectans norén et moestrup gen. et sp. nov. (perkinsozoa phylum nov.): a parasitic flagellate capable of killing toxic microalgae
TLDR
The toxic dinoflagellate Dinophysis, collected on the Swedish West Coast, was found to contain round bodies previously interpreted as the result of sexual reproduction, which proved to be sporangia of a parasitic protist, here named Parvilucifera infectans gen. et sp. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of the SSU rRNA from members of the Plasmodiophorida and Phagomyxida.
TLDR
The Plasmodiophorida and Phagomyxida are orders of zoosporic eukaryotes of uncertain phylogenetic affinities that form a monophyletic grouping that clusters most closely with a rhizopod assemblage consisting of sarcomonads and chlorarachneans. Expand
Pirsonia guinardiae, gen. et spec. nov.: A parasitic flagellate on the marine diatomGuinardia flaccida with an unusual mode of food uptake
Pirsonia guinardiae gen. et spec. nov. was discovered as a parasite onGuinardia flaccida in the North Sea near List/Sylt during a bloom of this centric planktonic diatom. It is a colourless, smallExpand
PARASITISM OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC DINOFLAGELLATES BY THREE STRAINS OF AMOEBOPHRYA (DINOPHYTA): PARASITE SURVIVAL, INFECTIVITY, GENERATION TIME, AND HOST SPECIFICITY1
TLDR
Results suggest that Amoebophrya strains have evolved somewhat divergent survival strategies that may encompass sexuality, heterotrophy during the “free‐living” dinospore stage, and dormancy. Expand

Pirsonia, phagotrophic nanoflagellates incertae sedis, feeding on marine diatoms: attachment, fine structure and taxonomy
TLDR
The Pirsonia flagellates are guided by the topography of the host cell surface to the rimoportulae through which the trophosome, a basally formed pseudopodium, penetrates into the diatom. Expand
Study of Genetic Diversity of Eukaryotic Picoplankton in Different Oceanic Regions by Small-Subunit rRNA Gene Cloning and Sequencing
TLDR
The diversity of marine picoeukaryotes was determined by sequencing cloned 18S rRNA genes in five genetic libraries from North Atlantic, Southern Ocean, and Mediterranean Sea surface waters, and the phylogenetic diversity in each library was rather great, and each library included many different OTUs and members of very distantly related phylogenetic groups.
