A new flagellate of the Raphidophyceae, Chlorinimonas sublosa gen. et sp. nov., collected from Wakayama Prefecture, Japan is described based on morphological observations, microspectrophotometry of chloroplasts, and phylogenetic analysis of SSU rDNA sequences. The cell was usually elliptical, sometimes spherical, oval or slender, and possessed two subequal heterodynamic flagella emerging from a subapical pit. Greenish yellow discoidal chloroplasts, 15–25 per cell, were situated at the periphery… CONTINUE READING
