SummaryFlagellated 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 silica-depositing flagellates, i.e., chrysophytes/synurophytes, choanoflagellates, dinoflagellates, ebriids, silicoflagellates, thaumatomastigids, and the genusPetasaria are reviewed. Brief mention is also given to those algal groups in which silicification is uncommon and rare (i.e… Expand
