Pseudomuriella N.Hanagata, 1998
Holotype species: Pseudomuriella aurantiaca (W.Vischer) N.Hanagata
Original publication and holotype designation: Hanagata, N. (1998). Phylogeny of the subfamily Scotiellocystoideae (Chlorophyceae, Chlorophyta) and related taxa inferred from 18S ribosomal RNAgene sequence data. Journal of Phycology 34: 1049-1054, 2 figs.
Taxonomic status: currently recognized as a distinct genus.
Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Fucíková, K., Rada, J.S., Lukesová, A. & Lewis, L.A. (2011). Cryptic diversity within the genus Pseudomuriella Hanagata (Chlorophyta, Chlorophyceae, Sphaeropleales) assessed using four barcode markers. Nova Hedwigia 93: 29-46.
According to Hanagata (1998), Coelastrella and Scotiellopsis are closely related to each other and form a cluster with Scenedesmus vacuolatus, and this cluster shares a monophyletic ancestry with other Scenedesmus species. They note that Muriella aurantica forms a sister relationship with the monophyletic lineage of Scenedesmus. [The species of Coelastrella, Scotiellopsis and Scenedesmus studied by Hanagata were not type species]. - (10 Aug 2011) - Wendy Guiry

Numbers of names and species: There are 4 species names in the database at present, of which 4 have been flagged as accepted taxonomically on the basis of the listed literature under the species name. In some instances, opinions on taxonomic validity differ from author to author and users are encouraged to form their own opinion. AlgaeBase is a work in progress and should not be regarded as a definitive source only as a guide to the literature..
Names: ('C' indicates a name that is accepted taxonomically; 'S' a homotypic or heterotypic synonym; 'U' indicates a name of uncertain taxonomic status, but which has been subjected to some verification nomenclaturally; 'P' indicates a preliminary AlgaeBase entry that has not been subjected to any kind of verification.

Verification of data
Users are responsible for verifying the accuracy of information before use, as noted on the website Content page.
Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in CD format. These AlgaeBase descriptions are now being continually updated, and each current contributor is identified above. The PSA and AlgaeBase warmly acknowledge the generosity of all past and present contributors and particularly the work of Dr Parker.
Descriptions of chrysophyte genera were subsequently published in J. Kristiansen & H.R. Preisig (eds.). 2001. Encyclopedia of Chrysophyte Genera. Bibliotheca Phycologica 110: 1-260.
