The fine structure of Theleodinium calcisporum places it in an intermediate position between Scrippsiella and Chimonodinium. The most inclusive phylogenetic tree shows Theleodinium in a statistically supported clade together with species of Scrippsiella and Duboscquodinium collinii. This clade in turn appears as a sister group to Tintinnophagus acutus, although, with no statistical support. The genus Chimonodinium has been shown in previously published phylogenetic trees to group with the pfiestericean clade (Craveiro et al. 2011). This is compatible with the picture given by structural analysis, that Theleodinium occupies an intermediary evolutionary position between the Scrippsiella clade and the clade containing Chimonodinium and the pfiesteriaceans.
