Subphylum Proteorhodophytina

Proteorhodophytina Muñoz-Gómez, Mejía-Franco, Durnin, Colp, Grisdale, J.M.Archibald & Slamovits, 2017: e3.

Original publication: Muñoz-Gómez, S.A., Mejía-Franco, F.G., Durnin, K., Colp, M., Grisdale, C.J., Archibald, J.M. & Slamovits, C.H. (2017). The new red algal subphylum Proteorhodophytina comprises the largest and most divergent plastid enomes known. Current Biology 27: 1-8.

Description:
Red algae with unicellular, pseudofilamentous or filamentous bodies inhabiting mesophilic freshwater and marine environments. Members of this group do not develop macroscopic, pseudoparenchymatous or parenchymatous seaweed-type thalli as those of the Eurhodophytina; variable plastid morphologies and organellar associations; plastid genomes with a large number of introns and a quadripartite organization where the rRNA operon-containing inverted repeats are divergent relative to the small single copy region.
