Taxonomy Detail

Order Microthamniales

Microthamniales M.Melkonian 1990.

Taxonomic notes:

Cited by Neustupa et al. (2011: fig. 22). They include Microthamnion kuetzinginum and Coleochlamy perforata in this order and place Dictyochloropsis reticulata in the Watanabea clade (Trebouxiophyceae).

According to Friedl (1995), this order was previously classified in the Chlorophyceae; now in the Trebouxiophyceae. He includes Dictyochloropsis reticulata in this order.
