Postgaardi J.Fenschel, C.Bernard, G.Esteban, B.J.Findlay, P.J.& Iversen, 1995
Original publication and holotype designation: Fenchel, T., Bernard, C., Esteban, G., Finlay, B.J., Hansen, P.J. & Iversen, N. (1995). Microbial diversity and activity in a Danish fjord with anoxic deep water. Ophelia 43: 45-100.
Taxonomic status: currently recognized as a distinct genus.
Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Cavalier-Smith, T. (2016). Higher classification and phylogeny of Euglenozoa. European Journal of Protistology 56: 250–276, 2 figs.
Comments: The type species does not possess a pellicle and thus may not be an Euglenoid. The name should probably be corrected under the Botanical Code to "Postgaardia" but this does not appear to have been done.
Numbers of names and species: There is only one species or infraspecific name in the database at present, which has 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.
