Description:
Chloroplast lamellae with three adpressed thylakoids, with girdle lamella, without distinct ring-shaped chloroplast DNA genophore; when present, flagellate cells with either a somewhat reduced or absent basal apparatus; transitional region of flagella with a small transitional helix below the major transitional plate; flagellar hairs bipartite or tripartite but without lateral filaments; with or without a paraxonemal rod; without an eyespot; chloroplast pigmentation including fucoxanthin, diatoxanthin, diadinoxanthin, and sometimes with 19'-butanoxylofucoxanthin; lacking violaxanthin.
