The morphology of Chroomonas heteromorpha from the Butcher collection is described. Structural features of this marine cryptophyte are characteristic of the recently established genus Pyrenomonas which has been suggested äs one of four natural pigmented genera known so far. The species is renamed accordingly: Pyrenomonas heteromorpha (Butcher) Santore comb. nov.

Re-examination ofPyrenomonas andRhodomonas (class cryptophyceae) through ultrastructural survey of red pigmented cryptomonads

The genus Rhodomonas Karsten (1898) is redescribed in this paper and the genusPyrenomonas Santore is considered to be synonymous withRhodomonas.

CHROOMONAS AND OTHER BLUE‐GREEN CRYPTOMONADS 1

Examination of four selected Chroomonas species indicates significant structural diversity within the genus, and the description of two new genera, Komma and Falcomonas is described.

Some proposals for a new classification system of the Cryptophyceae

Abstract Comments are made on some existing classification systems of the Cryptophyceae. A new system is also proposed. This allows for the existence of three orders, four families, seven pigmented

Rhinomonas nottbecki n. sp. (Cryptomonadales) and Molecular Phylogeny of the Family Pyrenomonadaceae

The analyses suggest that the genus Storeatula is an alternating morphotype of the genera Rhinomonas and Rhodomona and that the family Pyrenomonadaceae includes some species that were described multiple times, as well as novel species.

A companion to the identification of cryptomonad flagellates (Cryptophyceae = Cryptomonadea)

This paper provides an annotated synopsis of cryptomonad morphology, ultrastructure, taxonomy and nomenclature and is envisaged that this paper will constitute the core of an interactive identification tool to be published electronically on the Internet in due course.

Structure and development of the cryptomonad periplast: A review

This review discusses relationships between periplast components and examines the development of this unique cell covering of cryptomonads with an IPC of discrete plates.

Cryptomonad nuclear and nucleomorph 18S rRNA phylogeny

Nuclear and nucleomorph 18S ribosomal RNA genes from six cryptomonads were amplified by the polymerase chain reaction and sequenced, giving more convincing evidence than before that cryptomonad nucleomorphs originated from a red alga and are not specifically related to Chlorarachnion nucleomorphics.

SOME ASPECTS OF TXONOMY IN THE CRYPTOPHYCEAE

It is proposed that the pigmented organisms can be assigned to four genera, Hemiselmis, Chroomonas, Cryptomonas and Pyrenomonas nom.

Three new species of the genus Cryptomonas (Cryptophyceae)

Descriptions and diagnoses of three new species of the class Cryptophyceae, Cryptomonas reticulata sp. nov., C calceiformis sp. nov. and C. rostrella sp. nov., are given using the light microscope.

OBSERVATIONS ON THE FINE STRUCTURE OF THE CRYPTOPHYCEAE. I. THE GENUS CRYPTOMONAS 1, 2

The nucleus, Golgi apparatus and the Corps de Maupas occupy characteristic positions within the cell, and are the most characteristic features that indicate that this algal class occupies a unique phylogenetic position.

Flagellar and body scales in the Cryptophyceae

Complements of minute, tenuously attached scales are described as additional flagellar appendages in Chroomonas sp. and on the periplast of strains assigned to the genus Cryptomonas. In both cases

An ultrastructural study of nucleomorphs in species of Cryptophyceae revealed aspects of division not previously reported, including the formation of a structured fibrous system, which accompanies
